The community is invited to participate in an end-of-year program designed to bring joy, spirit, and hope to nearly 1,000 local children who go without a gift during the holiday season. From Monday, November 1 to Friday, December 10, the City’s family resource centers are seeking donations of new board games and toys for the annual Garden Grove Holiday Drive. Donations may be dropped off at the Recreation Counter located in Garden Grove City Hall, at 11222 Acacia Parkway; Buena Clinton Youth and Family Center, located at 12661 Sunswept Avenue; or Magnolia Park Family Resource Center, located at 11402 Magnolia Street.

Monetary donations and gift cards are also accepted, and are tax-deductible.

The Magnolia Park Family Resource Center and the Buena Clinton Youth and Family Center provide residents with low or no-cost programs focused on youth enrichment, personal empowerment, counseling, family support services, and parenting education.

For over 20 years, the City has worked to bring holiday cheer to local disadvantaged families. In 2020, with assistance from the community, 340 local families, and approximately 840 children, received gifts.
