Help Solana Beach brighten the lives of local families in need

The City of Solana Beach is a proud supporter of Holiday Baskets — the largest holiday distribution of its kind in San Diego County. This unique program creates a warehouse-like “shopping” experience for local families in need who are invited to fill their shopping carts with donated staple foods, clothing, blankets, toys, and so much more at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Dec. 16, 17, and 18.

To make a donation, please stop by City Hall (635 S. Highway 101) and take an ornament from the Giving Tree and return it to City Hall with your donation (between now and Dec. 15) of one of the following items:

• Bag of nonperishable food.

• New toy or teen gift.

• New or gently used blankets.

• New or gently used jackets or coats for children (all sizes).
