Christmas Project Tradition Continues

On Wednesday, December 19th, Second Harvest collaborated with the Christmas Project to ensure low-income families would have protein and fresh produce to prepare warm meals over the holiday.

The food was delivered to seven migrant worker camps where volunteers, including members of CalFire and the Aptos LaSelva Fire Department, helped distribute large bags of fresh produce, roasting chickens, and boxes of non-perishable foods to 200 families. Watsonville-based company, Smith and Vandiver, donated soaps and lotions to distribute as well.

As the temperatures drop and the growing season draws to a close, a little extra help goes a long way. The Christmas Project, founded by Gladys Anderson over two decades ago, helps make the holidays a little happier for the working poor. In addition to the food distribution, Gladys and her volunteers will deliver wrapped toys and gifts to families on Saturday.
