HOLIDAY DRIVE 

Mutual Aid

Serving the Beach Flats Community and the Emerald Bay Apartment Community, we have the opportunity to provide children from these communities an extra special holiday season. Below, there is a wish list filled out by these communities' parents to make their children's year extra special. In collaboration with Fuerza Latinx, we are thrilled to be apart of bringing joy to underserved communities in Santa Cruz.  

As we live in unprecedented times, many families around our community struggle to make ends meet and provide warm shelter, clothing, and meals for their families; and are unable to provide joy around the holidays. With your help, we can make a child's holiday wishes come true. 

Happy Holidays
