Whittier Families Receive Holiday Food Boxes and Toys

The Community Development Commission of the County of Los Angeles (CDC) held its 13th Annual Holiday Basket and Toy Giveaway for 300 pre-registered low-income Whittier-area families.  Santa Claus greeted families, handed out gifts, and took photographs with the excited children at the Community Resource Center (CRC) located in South Whittier.

The event was co-sponsored by Los Angeles County Supervisors Don Knabe and Gloria Molina.

Owned by the County and operated by the CDC, the CRC opened on February 11, 1998, and was developed to serve as a productive meeting place for events like today’s giveaway.  The center offers a number of valuable resources and programs, such as youth and family services, educational workshops, a computer learning center, and health care services.

The Community Resource Center is located at 10750 Laurel Avenue in Whittier.  For information on services provided by the CRC, please call (562) 946-2425 or visit the website at www.swcrc.org.
