LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA – Looking to strengthen ties to its community and give back this holiday season, the Allen Lund Company is participating in a toy drive to help less-fortunate families celebrate Christmas. The company welcomed a generous toy donation from The Hillside School and Learning Center this Thursday, December 8.
"Every toy helps and we thank Hillside School for joining us in the effort in providing toys to hundreds of children this holiday season" said Kenny Lund, ALC VP Support Operations, in a press release.
The donation was presented by students from the school along with the school’s Assistant Director Cyndi Hatcher. The donations will add to the efforts of Allen Lund Company in support of a toy drive for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
On December 17, the donated toys will be distributed by St. Vincent de Paul to more than 700 needy families. Participating families will receive both a toy and a pair of shoes for each child.
Additionally, a Christmas meal will be provided for each of the families involved by Navidad en el Barrio. We have previously reported on the continuing partnership between Allen Lund, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and Navidad En El Barrio here, here, and here.
