FOOD AND TOY DRIVE UNDERWAY
Local residents will once again find barrels for the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station Annual Food and Toy drive at local stores. Those who wish to donate can place can goods or unwrapped new toys in the barrels that are monitored by volunteers from the Sheriff’s Station. Donated food and toys are distributed to Foothill families in need.
FLOAT HELP SOUGHT
The La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association is seeking volunteers as well as donations to complete the city’s entry in the 2010 parade. For the 32nd consecutive year the City of La Cañada Flintridge will be represented in the Rose Parade with a float entirely built and decorated through volunteer efforts. Of the 31 previous entries, 21 have received awards, including five for Best Animation. Anyone available to lend some hands-on help can come to the construction site any Saturday morning at the rear of Valley Water Company, 4524 Hampton Road and toot your horn when you reach the gate; the construction gang will find a job for you. To volunteer for “deco week” after the float moves next door under the bridge on Dec. 26, visit www.lcftra.org, click on “Scissored Wizard Decorator Forms Now Available Here”, and complete and submit the form as instructed. Monetary donations are also needed and appreciated. Send a check to LCFTRA, P.O. Box 253, LCF 91012; donations are fully tax-deductible.
