The City of Garden Grove’s youth and family centers are seeking donations for the 2018 Garden Grove Holiday Drive, which works to bring joy, hope, and holiday spirit to local children and families that are underprivileged. Donations are being accepted from now until Friday, December 14, 2018.
The City’s youth and family centers are made up of the Buena Clinton Youth and Family Center and Magnolia Park Family Resource Center. Both centers provide Garden Grove residents with vital community services that include low or no-cost programs focused on youth enrichment, personal empowerment, counseling, family support services, and parenting education.
Monetary donations, gift cards, toys, canned food, board games, and other donations can be dropped off at any of the following locations:
- Buena Clinton Youth and Family Center: 12661 Sunswept Avenue
- Magnolia Park Family Resource Center: 11402 Magnolia Street
- Garden Grove City Hall - Recreation Counter: 11222 Acacia Parkway
Checks should be made payable to Garden Grove Community Foundation and mailed to Holiday Drive, c/o GGCF, P.O. Box 3070, Garden Grove, CA 92842. Tax receipts are available upon request.
For over 20 years, the City’s youth and family centers have worked to bring holiday cheer to local families that are disadvantaged. Last year, with the assistance from the community, the youth and family centers served over 300 Garden Grove families, giving approximately 900 local children the opportunity to unwrap a present during the holiday season.
