Harbor Interfaith works to fill the void for the homeless and working poor during the holidays. We distribute holiday food baskets, toys for the children, and provide social connection. We also invite our supporters to offer direct help to the clients. Here is what you can do.
Donate Thanksgiving Food: On November 21, we will distribute over 350 Thanksgiving food baskets, each including a frozen turkey, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, boxed mashed potatoes, stuffing, yams, and desserts. We invite you to donate items between now and November 17th. Gift cards are welcome, too.
Donate Christmas Food: On December 20, we will distribute another 350 Christmas food baskets that will include the same types of food as we gave for Thanksgiving but with hams instead of turkeys. We invite you to donate food by December 19.
Donate Toys for the Children: December 20 is the date for the annual toy distribution for children. Over 900 children will be given over 1,600 toys. We invite you to donate new toys for all ages, including gift cards for the older children.
Please bring your donations to the rear loading dock at the Family Resource Center Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 670 W. 9th St., San Pedro. Thank you for supporting your community.
Adopt a Family (or Families): Each year we invite you to adopt one or more families for the holidays. You can adopt as an individual, a family, a church, a group, or a business. Adoption lets you bring joy to families who can’t provide it for themselves. If you decide to adopt one or more families, we will give you a holiday wish list from the family. We ask that you wrap the gifts and bring them to the Block Party to present them to the family on Saturday, December 16. The event will be held at the Family Shelter facility from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. To adopt a family, please contact Mike Radice, Director of Development by December 4 at 310-831-0603 or MRadice@HarborInterrfaith.org
