La Mirada Rotary Needs Volunteers and Donations
Rotary Club of La Mirada needs your help to make the annual “Clothes for Kids” holiday shopping event a success in 2015.
Rotary is planning to again contribute more than $5,000 to the “Clothes for Kids” shopping event, but needs your support to address growing needs in the community.
You can help buy new, warm clothes for children in La Mirada this holiday season by donating or volunteering at the event. Each $150 contributed to the “Clothes for Kids” project will sponsor an additional child, but contributions of any amount will be appreciated.
Children are selected to participate in the event by La Mirada Elementary Schools. Each child brings a list of needed items such as jackets, sweaters, pants, shoes and socks.
Community volunteers are also needed to help children shop for clothes at the Marshalls Department Store in La Mirada, which will open early on Wednesday, Dec. 9 for this special holiday season event.
After the shopping, the children will be transported by bus to the La Mirada Activity Center to meet Santa Claus, enjoy a snack, donated by Chick-fil-A in La Habra, and receive a wrapped toy gift. Students then return to school.
