Holiday Blanket and Jacket Drive to be held in Del Mar for North County families

The City of Del Mar recently announced that the City and the Del Sol Lions have teamed-up to collect new and gently used blankets and jackets for the annual Holiday Baskets Program.

The Community Resource Center started this program over 30 years ago by distributing baskets of food to 50 low-income working families. Today, the Holiday Basket Program serves over 1,700 pre-qualified North County families and the generic baskets of food have expanded to a dignified shopping experience held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.  This year, they are explicitly looking to collect 7,300 new and gently used coats and jackets and 2,000 new and used blankets.

If you are interested in supporting this program, please bring unwrapped blankets and jackets to the Del Mar City Hall Lobby at 1050 Camino Del Mar during normal business hours (Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.).  Items will be collected Monday, Nov. 18, through Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013.

For further information, please contact: Katie Benson at Del Mar City Hall, 858-755-9313, or Linette Page at Del Sol Lions, 858-243-3336.
