It’s the holiday season once again, and St. Francis High School is celebrating with an opportunity for residents to give to the less fortunate at their annual Christmas Toy Drive. This year’s drive will be held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 13.
New, unwrapped toys that are donated will go to providing the families of the St. Lawrence of Brindisi Parish in Watts with a merry Christmas. Donors are asked to drop toys off at St. Francis High School, 200 Foothill Blvd. For more information, contact Andy Burghdorf at (818) 790-0325, ext. 513.
In addition, last month the students, faculty and staff at St. Francis collected canned food to support the St. Lawrence Parish to ensure that families in need had food on the table for Thanksgiving. The community donated more than 5,200 cans of food, as well as $1,500 for purchasing turkeys.
