Eligible North County families filled shopping carts or ‘baskets’ with donated food, blankets, outerwear, toys, bicycles, baby items and more. More than 200 groups and organizations and over 1,600 volunteers came together to brighten the holidays for more than 1,400 households in the program. (Photos/Jon Clark)
