LCF Preschoolers Look to Spread Holiday Cheer

This holiday season, preschoolers will learn kindness and compassion through “Adopt-A-Family” at the La Cañada Flintridge Community Center Preschool.
In its 22nd year, this philanthropic program gives students and parents the opportunity to provide gifts and holiday cheer to three families in need at St. Thomas the Apostle School and Parish in Los Angeles.
“Adopt-A-Family” begins as students return from the Thanksgiving break, with a festive “Giving Tree” placed in the courtyard. The tree is decorated with paper ornaments that detail a “wish” from a family in need. These wishes vary from winter clothing and toys to diapers and groceries. Preschoolers may pick one or more ornaments that they and their families will fulfill. Students can bring the beautifully wrapped gifts back to the preschool. The items will then be delivered to St. Thomas the Apostle Parish before Christmas.
“These wonderful families face overwhelming financial challenges, and we hope to ease some of the financial burden and bring happiness to their holiday season,” said Danielle Caputo, director of the Community Center Preschool. “We also hope our preschoolers discover the importance of giving back and caring for others this holiday season.”
Community-wide giving reflects the school’s nurturing philosophy, curriculum, and supportive family atmosphere. For more information about LCF’s Community Center Preschool’s activities contact Caputo at (818) 790-8687 or visit communitycenterpreschool.org.
