Our Family Events are a day for our volunteers and donors to connect with our program families and see how deeply their impact is felt.
Families Helping Families
Our annual holiday event matches compassionate donors with 300 of our neediest families, many who can barely get by and are in need of basic items for survival. Volunteers can adopt a family as a Santa, help out at our “North Pole” as Elves, or deliver presents as Reindeer. Families Helping Families is a heart-warming event that creates an unforgettable experience for all.
Held at the Santa Ana Zoo, Summer Celebration is an opportunity for our donors, volunteers and sponsors to meet some of the families we serve. We provide a fun, carnival-like environment with food, games, and crafts, while giving out free backpacks and school supplies for school-aged children to prepare them for the coming academic year. In all, we distribute about 600 backpacks to needy children in Orange County
