Light Up the Night


Last year, we were able to do our first ever Light Up the Night holiday event for these amazing kids, and we had every intention of doing it again this year… until Covid-19 hit.

But we were not going to let a little thing like a global pandemic keep us from blessing these extraordinary kids. So, this year on December 9th, we are excited to host this Covid-19 safe, drive through event for this incredible community of foster kids and children experiencing homelessness. We have great plans that include a stilt walker, Star Wars and live action side shows, live animals including Reindeer, a snow tunnel, the 65-foot Christmas tree, take home crafts and of course food and gifts for all the kiddos. 

Last year we expected 800 and had over 2,000 attend. So, you see the need is great. This year we are told to expect about 3000… so, we will see!

Whether it’s through a donation or volunteering, we invite you to partner with us as we impact countless lives through this community event. Encompassing the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys , we anticipate about 3000 children and their families to be in attendance, making this an event you won’t want to miss!

• Giveaways
