Sugar Plum Tree has started at the Shops at Santa Anita


FOFC is busy as Santa's Elves work the Sugar Plum Trees at The Shops at Santa Anita. 

If you want to participate, but cannot make it to the Mall, you can still give in a variety of different ways.

Starting on the December 1st, FOFC opens their Christmas Giving Trees in the Shops at Santa Anita in Arcadia. These trees are filled with Christmas wishes from over 400 individual foster children and 10 residential treatment centers. Each child will receive at least one of the gifts they request. Many children comment that this is the first time in their life they have received a new Christmas gift for which they have wished. It is heartwarming to see the generosity people have for children they have never met. This is truly the magic of Christmas!

You can also buy a gift from the FOFC registry at Target.  It’s easy, just click on  https://www.target.com/gift-registry/gift-giver?registryId=aeaca0e0-51a7-11ec-9604-67ae395d70e7&type=CHARITY and you will be taken to the wish list.  You can select from over 70 wishes that have been submitted by the homes.   The gift will be sent to the pickup spot for your convenience (no lugging it to the Mall).

You can also click on the red  “Donate” button in the top right hand corner of the page or donate through Venmo.  You can use the following QR Code to make a donation.
