TOY AND BLANKET DRIVE
The City of San Leandro’s Youth Advisory Commission sponsored a Toy and Blanket Drive to support Calico, a non-profit organization in San Leandro that serves abused children. In addition to collecting toys, plushies, books, and hygiene products, YAC hosted a blanket making event where teens produced 20 fleece blankets. YAC extends sincere gratitude to all those who donated items and those who participated in the blanket making event. Huge shout out to YAC Chair Elizabeth Thomas, Co-Chair Judy Zhou, and the entire planning committee for the inspiring leadership and apparent passion to enhance the lives of San Leandro youth.
