Today is the big delivery day for the annual Holiday Basket Program — designed to provide some holiday cheer for hundreds of needy families with school age children  in Burbank. A team of diligent volunteers and organizers worked for several hours late yesterday, building and stocking baskets for 600 families in the auditorium at George Washington Elementary School on North Lincoln Street in Burbank.

The baskets are really colorful boxes and bags stuffed with things like personal items, clothes, toys, DVDs …etc. Food will be added to each family basket before it’s delivery today.

This is huge undertaking. More volunteers are needed to help with the loading and delivery of the baskets. If you have a couple of hours to spare drop by lunch shelter in back of the George Washington Elementary School auditorium this morning.
