PRESS RELEASE:

RICHMOND, CA  On December 1st, The Latina Center will host its annual Christmas Festival to offer to our families in the community a day full of joy.

Festivities will take place from10 am to3 pm located at 3701 Barrett Avenue in Richmond.  Holiday food baskets and blankets will be provided to families in need.

This initiative began with a donation from The San Francisco Foundation that allowed us to prepare 20 food baskets.  This ”Christmas spirit of giving” grew and we asked our community to join us in making a contribution so that we could give 100 food baskets and blankets to 100 families.

Because of the response from our staff, community leaders, local businesses, non-profit organizations, churches and our family and friends, The Latina Center is grateful to be able to provide 100 food baskets, blankets and a day of celebration to the families during our annual Christmas Festival on December 1st.  Walgreens will also be on hand to provide flu vaccines to those who need them.  The LatinaCenter is thankful for this opportunity to serve.
