Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6885 and 6885 Auxiliary collaborated to put on a toy and food drive to help veteran families, seniors and community families who have fallen on hard times.
The VFW post started this outreach Nov. 21 and it ran through Dec. 5, collecting toys and food at various locations such as VFW Post 6885, Marci’s Sport Bar & Grill, Vons on Sand Canyon and The Signal. The drive also received many donations from community and post members, motorcycle clubs and community retailers such as Target and Food4Less.
Donations will be distributed through the Santa Clarita Valley to the following organizations: Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley, Santa Clarita Veteran Services Collaborative, seniors, veterans and community families that have fallen on hard times.
