Through the generosity and support of many individuals and companies, we were able to bring the message of Christmas joy and happiness to the families of Shady Lane, a manufactured home community located in Thermal, California.

​Home to approximately 150 men, women and children, Shady Lane is mainly comprised of farm workers with very limited resources.  The Foundation organized a Christmas Adopt-A-Family program for the residents.  Gifts and funds were collected in order to insure that each and every person at Shady Lane received a special present for Christmas.

Although it was raining, it did not stop our volunteers' hearts from shining as they went door-to-door delivering gifts to the residents. Many families expressed their gratitude and were at a total loss for words.  We then gathered together in community to share food, drinks and celebrate the season of giving.

We would like to express our special thanks all those individuals of the following companies and communities who specifically contributed to the Adopt-A Family Campaign and helped make this wonderful holiday experience possible!

  • Redwitz, Inc.

  • The GDR Group

  • Birtcher Anderson Realty Management Inc.

  • Valle Verde Estates
