Although the way we celebrate the holidays this year is vastly different than ever before, nothing could stand in the way of Team Price’s yearly tradition of distributing toys and bikes to thousands of local children. This year, instead of being face to face, we held a first of its kind, drive-thru toy giveaway in District 9 on Dec. 19 at my District Office. The one thing that remains constant was the joy through the eyes of our children. Take a look at the photos here and you’ll feel the warmth and hope of the season.
While our Winter Wonderland community event, where we distributed toys, baby clothes and groceries and which included social distancing protocols, was our main event of 2020, my staff and I were able to spread love and cheer to the community all month long. I want to express my sincere appreciation to our valued partners for their generosity, which allowed us to maintain a sense of normalcy in these perilous times. Thank you to Balfour Beatty, California Resources Corporation, Destination Enterprises, eaze, Fluor, HNTB, Northgate Gonzalez Market, Soledad Enrichment Action, TEC, Union Bank, and others for being there for our families. Through their support, we participated in the dissemination of thousands of toys, diapers, boxes of food, personal protective equipment and other supplies, across events districtwide this December.
As we approach the end of a most-challenging year, we can reflect on a chapter that taught us a great many lessons while showcasing our resolve, perseverance and dedication to one another. Our strength was put to the test but it did not waver under the pressure, ensuring the foundation we have laid will continue to lift us up during the times we need it the most.
Happy Holidays! Team Price wishes you and your family good health and happiness in the New Year ahead.
