The Azusa Canyon Off Road Association has always been willing to lend a hand in the off road community and this year marks the 19th consecutive year of their annual holiday toy drive to help Rosemary Children’s Services of Pasadena, home for abused and abandoned children, to bring the joy of Christmas to these well deserving boys and girls.
This year, the Solanos Offroad Team is partnering with ACORA to help raise money for the Annual Toy Drive benefiting The Rosemary Foundation as well as the Challengers Boys Club. ACORA and the Solano are planning fun games for all the kids and have even set up an appearance by Santa Claus himself who will come bearing gifts at the annual Christmas party. We’re told that in many cases over the years, the Rosemary Children’s Service Christmas party was the first time these children had ever met Santa Claus. You can image the excitement the children experience at that moment.
While we don’t have any power to change the heartbreaking issues many of these young kids are facing, ACORA seeks to give them a ray of hope by putting on their annual Christmas Party on December 7th. Bringing joy to well deserving kids even just for a little while will no doubt help the past melt away while also bringing hope to these kids by showing them that they were not left behind or forgotten and that there are people out there care very deeply about them. Ultimately the goal is to provide gifts for the approximately 120 children as well as small carnival toys as gifts prizes for the games. The children range in ages from one to 18 years of age.
After Tuesday's meeting and the toy needs reconciled, ACORA is just $860.00 short of meeting this year's goal so let's help them reach it.
If you would like to donate toys, swag, shirts etc, that’s as good as gold and all donations and gifts are tax deductible.
