If making a monetary donation, 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.
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 year-round vital community services that include low or no-cost programs focused on youth enrichment, personal empowerment, counseling, family support services, and parent education.
