One of the largest Christmas holiday food and toy giveaways in the East San Gabriel Valley will be held this Saturday, December 1st, at Ganesha Park in Pomona. It is the fifth annual Sowing Seeds for Life "Christmas in the Park," which begins at noon and ends around 4 p.m.
In addition to food for the needy and toys for children, the event features pictures with Santa Claus, kids’ games, live entertainment, and fun activities.
Last year’s "Christmas in the Park" attracted more than 3,000 people, with 2,042 signing up to receive non-perishable food items. Also, 406 toys were passed out to children. And some of the best musicians in the area provided entertainment arranged by jazz radio station KTST (79.5 FM).
