The Community Center’s Thanksgiving Day Food Drive is one of the largest efforts in the foothill communities. Canned and other non-perishable food is collected during November at CCLCF as well as from select businesses and schools throughout the area. Donations are distributed by the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station to local families in need. 

The Community Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1949. It has served the thousands of children and adults offering a variety of enriching, recreational and educational opportunities for members of the LCF community.
