Child Abuse Prevention Center Relies on Community Support To Bring Christmas to 300 Families
The Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center will launch the annual Families Helping Families event on Dec. 15-16, where generous donors and over 400 volunteers will come together to bring a special holiday to 300 desperately needy families.
“Families Helping Families is a unique event in which the community can experience firsthand the hardship faced by the families we serve,” said Scott Trotter, executive director of the Child Abuse Prevention Center. “Our community partners and volunteers bridge the gap between 1,200 children and parents who would go without basic needs items such as warm clothes, shoes, and diapers. Our generous ‘Santas’ allow families facing the risk of abuse and neglect to focus on creating a safe, stable home for their children.”
The 2012 Families Helping Families event is made possible by the support of community groups and corporate supporters including Wells Fargo, Apria Healthcare, Western Digital, Target, Costco Wholesale, Experian, Paul Martin’s American Grill, and the Center for Spiritual Living.
