JCI Santa Clarita (the Jaycees) are thrilled to be partnering with Westfield Town Center on an exciting new Easter community event called the Hopper’s Helpers! Following the success of our Santa’s Helpers Toy Drive benefiting underprivileged children in our valley, we are exploring an Easter Eggstravaganza where children who receive services from selected local nonprofits can have a family fun Easter day with candy and surprises!

This event is a great way for young professionals to learn project management skills and give back to their community. JCI Santa Clarita will be holding regular online trainings and meetings to help young active citizens learn how to execute a successful community project. We will also be looking at holding a special Easter themed social event.
