The Ventura Family YMCA presented their annual Santa Stops by the Y event on December 12. This was a community event for children to have their photo taken with Santa and the opportunity to participate in fun crafts! Those attending were asked to bring one unwrapped toy or gift per child to enter.
The donations will benefit low-income families by giving them the chance to find holiday presents at the ACTION Foundation’s Christmas Shoppe. The children who participated in the event had their photos taken with Santa and a fun time making Christmas themed crafts.
