electronics, CDs, videos, and other suitable gifts
to more than 500 children in the LA area. This
is a grassroots community program designed to
provide gifts for children and teenagers
up to age 17. All donations, large and small, put some cheer
into the holidays for a child who may otherwise
not have received any gift at all.
