Calling all elves. Christmas is just around the corner and Santa needs your help JCI Santa Clarita, affectionately known as the Jaycees, has kicked off their annual holiday project – Santa’s Helpers – which provides an unforgettable Christmas to over 250 underprivileged youths in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Toys are collected throughout the Santa Clarita Valley and JCI Santa Clarita is grateful to Starbucks for our continued and deepening partnership. Donation boxes for toys as well as gift cards will be in every Starbucks Location in Santa Clarita Valley. In addition, many local businesses will be hosting boxes including the SCV Book Exchange, The Santa Clarita Magazine and Henry Mayo Health and Fitness.

Lists are given to JCI Santa Clarita by local nonprofits and we aim to support each child with 3-4 gifts. Non profits we work with include, Child and Family Center, Single Mothers Outreach, Bridge To Home, Domestic Violence Shelter and Family Promise.

New for 2019, JCI Santa Clarita is proud to announce a new partnership with Westfield Valencia Town Center. We are grateful to Corrine Barchanowicz and Audra Cheney of Westfield for their kind assistance. This year the Jaycees will be hosting a holiday party at Westfield Valencia Town Center complete with Ice Staking (thanks to the LA Kings), meeting Santa, enjoying “The Bounce House” and a holiday party at Dudes Brewery.

Unlike other toy drives, Santa’s Helpers helps 0-18-year old’s, as children turn into teenagers, requests are often for gift cards rather than traditional toys. In order to help fundraise, JCI Santa Clarita will be hosting a “Turkey Trot” with the Paseo Club on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, from 8:00 a.m, bring an unwrapped toy or gift card and work off those Thanksgiving calories in advance.

The Jaycees will also be hosting their ever popular “Pint Night” at Wolf Creek Brewery on Tuesday, Dec. 3, with Trivia for all ages from 6:30pm and on Thursday, Dec. 5, will be performing random acts of kindness at the Westfield Valencia Mall from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Come along and donate a unwrapped toy or gift card, we’ll be outside JC Penny. Lazy Dog will also be hosting a fundraiser all day – just mention JCI Santa Clarita.

The Jaycees will also be spreading holiday cheer with an event at Bridge To Home to help our local homeless population Dec. 22, with a dinner and care pakcgaes.

JCI Santa Clarita appreciates its partners and sponsors– Westfield Valencia Town Center, Santa Clarita Magazine, The Paseo Club, and BJ’s Brewhouse Valencia – who continually aid in providing a memorable Christmas for many of these families. However, the Jaycees cannot do it alone! Sponsorships are available from $100 – $3,000 by contacting jcisantaclaritita@gmail.com. New this year is sponsoring a Christmas Tree which will be displayed at our holiday party and then raffled off to one of the families we assist.
