The JCI Santa Clarita organization for young business professionals has set several community events for December and invite residents to join in the fun leading up to the year-end holidays.
Thursday, December 5 – Our December Chat and Chill is a little different this month. We will be working with Westfield Valencia Town Center making merry from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
We want everyone to wear festive ugly sweaters, Santa hats or even elf outfits and we will be handing out flyers and little gifts. Westfield will be graciously donating funds back to us from their photo sales with Santa.
After that, we can all head over to Lazy Dog, which will give 15 percent back all day to JCI Santa’s Helpers as part of Westfield Valencia Town Center Give Thanks Thursday. Please bring along the voucher or show it on your phones. A voucher can be downloaded here.
December 8 – Our JCI board president has been doing an event called Bowling for Kids to help out the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. And JCI Santa Clarita is going to go and have some fun. Join us for a little bowling action. Tickets are $25 for one bowler and $110 for five bowlers. Tickets are available here.
December 11 – Help the Jaycees sort all the gifts for the good little boys and girls at Westfield Valencia Town Center. This will require you to go “shopping” for the kids through the toys we received from donations. We will be providing drinks and pizza. Volunteers of all ages welcome; if under high school age you do need to be with an adult. We are looking for about 50 volunteers. Sign up here.
December 12 – Help wrap the sorted presents for the children benefiting from Santa’s Helpers. We will be providing drinks and pizza. Volunteers of all ages welcome; if under high school age you do need to be with an adult. We are looking for about 50 volunteers. Sign up here.
December 14 – It’s time for the grand finale of Santa’s Helpers. The gifts have been collected, sorted, and wrapped. We will be throwing the Christmas party for the underprivileged children in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Due to the privacy of the families, those volunteering onsite at the party or for post-party cleanup must be 20 years of age or older. Please do not bring your children unless they are 21 years of age or older.
Attire: All of Santa’s helpers are encouraged to dress up in festive, Christmas/Holiday attire for the party – so come and wear those awesome Christmas sweaters, elf and Christmas gear and costumes. Families will arrive from 9 a.m. so we wish for you to be in place by then. We are looking for about 10 volunteers. Sign up here.
Join us at The Dude’s Brewing Co.: As a thank-you to everyone who served on either the SCV 40 Under Forty committee or the JCI Santa’s Helpers 2019 committee, the board of JCI Santa Clarita invites you to celebrate the holidays.
We will provide one drink ticket and food with our thanks. Feel free to bring your friends, we ask that they provide a $15 donation to help cover the gift card costs from Santa’s Helpers. If you are able to come, please complete the Eventbrite sign-up so we can keep track of numbers for the food as we need to confirm the night before.
December 22 – We will be feeding about 75 homeless people just before Christmas at Bridge to Home. We are also working on collecting items for them that we will hand out then as care packages.
If you would like to get involved in this please contact Traci Taplin, VP of Community and Volunteering, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-469-4536 and she will assist you.
