Toy and Food Drive saved by last-second donation push

leave a comment »

A last-minute donation push Friday allowed the Crescenta Valley Sheriff Station staff and volunteers to assist more than 160 families in need over the weekend as the station’s annual holiday Toy and Food Drive came to a close.

Dep. Jorge Valdivia said they received 2,000 toys — enough so that every child could be given more than one. Each family was also provided with a $20 gift card plus up to four bags of groceries.

“Friday was a big push, it was a Christmas miracle,” Valdivia said. “We had a great success this year The station volunteers did a lot of work this week.”
