Join Monrovia Employees in Giving Back for the Holidays

Post Date:12/10/2019 2:23 PM

In the spirit of the holidays, Monrovia city employees came together to give back to those in need. Monrovia employees not only donated items needed for the holidays, such as gifts and clothing, but also generously offered their time to provide rich experiences for the community.

Holiday Food Distribution

Together with the Foothill Unity Center, the Monrovia Police Officers’ Association participated in the Annual Thanksgiving Distribution where over 850 families received fresh produce and all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The City’s police chief, police captains and officers spent the morning filling shopping carts with canned and dry goods, escorting families around the venue to pick up fresh produce and a frozen turkey, then assisted families with loading their cars with the goods.

Spark of Love Toy Drive

The Monrovia Firefighters Association, along with the City of Monrovia, will continue to collect toys for ABC7 Spark of Love Toy Drive until December 23. If you’re interested in donating new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens, please drop the items off at Station 101 at 141 E. Lemon Avenue.

Project Angel

Partnering with the Foothill Unity Center, Monrovia employees participated in Project Angel. Beginning in the fall, adult clients of Foothill Unity Center registered their children to receive gifts for the holiday seasons. During the holidays, Monrovia employees adopted an angel and purchased the items in need including, new clothing, books and toys. This year, Monrovia employees donated over 200 items towards Project Angel!
