Many of Big Bears community organizations including the Lions and Kiwanis clubs and many of the churches are joining their resources to provide free gifts to our needy children, from babies to the age of 12.  Interviews with parents and guardians will take place from 2:00- 5:00pm at the Masonic Lodge on Summit Avenue, on on the following dates:  11-14-10, 11-20-10, 11-21-10, and 12-5-10. On 12-18-10 from 8:00am to 12:00 noon we will distribute the gifts to the families at the Masonic Lodge.  The coordinator for the program is Mr. George Picardi, and his telephone number is (909) 584-3419.

For those interested in donating money for the purchase of coats, shoes and gloves to the children may do so by sending a check made out to the Kiwanis club of BBV Foundation and mailed to the Kiwanis Club, P.O. Box 6522, Big Bear Lake, Ca 92315.
