Pathways LA, a nonprofit based at 3325 Wilshire Blvd. providing resources for young children, held its annual Winter Wonderland Toy and Book Giveaway on Dec. 11.
Children and families received toys and books. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti helped Pathways LA staff greet parents and children.
“It was great volunteering at Pathways LA’s Winter Wonderland event to distribute toys and books to more than 100 families,” Garcetti said. “Despite the hardships we’ve faced as a city, Angelenos continue to step up and give back.”
Families also received diapers, wipes, children’s face masks, hand sanitizers, items from Blue Shield of California and activity bags with mugs, picture frames and toys for child development. Children posed for photographs with Santa Claus and his elves.
“Pathways LA is deeply committed to uplifting children and their families,” Pathways LA CEO Tamika Farr said. “Winter Wonderland is about developing a supportive community and giving back to others so that all families can enjoy the holiday season.”
