Santa Clarita JCI Offers Volunteer Opportunities, Community Events This Holiday Season


As the holiday season approaches, Junior Chamber International of Santa Clarita offers volunteer opportunities and community events, such as gift wrapping training and a holiday toy drive.

On Sunday, December 5, JCI will host an instructional session on gift wrapping, teaching participants how to properly wrap a gift for the holiday season. The event is open to the public and will be held in downtown Westfield Valencia on the 2nd floor near the former Sears location.

Three 30-minute sessions are scheduled between 10:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. To attend, JCI requests a monetary donation of any amount or a new unwrapped gift that will go to the Santa’s Helpers event.

The annual Santa’s Helper’s event is a toy drive for underprivileged children in the Santa Clarita Valley ages 0-18. JCI Santa Clarita partners with companies, organizations and

individuals to raise funds and donations to provide new toys and gifts for children in December, officials said.

“Did you know that according to the US census, approximately 17,000 people in Santa Clarita live in poverty? The holiday season is a great time for our community to rally around our neighbors in need, ”said Santa’s Helpers Co-Chair JR Hills.

People can participate in the event by donating unwrapped toys, volunteering, or being part of the Santa’s Helpers Sponsorship Program. For a list of sponsorship opportunities and to find a place to donate gifts, click here.

Monetary donations can be made to the JCI PayPal or Venmo account at the event. Gift cards to large retailers will also be accepted. Gifts can be intended for children of any age, including teens.
