Starting on the Friday after Thanksgiving, FOFC sets up Christmas trees in the Westfield Santa Anita Mall 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!
Over ten "outside groups" (local businesses) also help to collect gifts. Please contact [email protected] if your business or group would like to participate.
