2017 CCSJ Christmas Toy Mountain

The CCSJ Food Pantry would like to thank everyone who donated to our yearly toy drive. We definitely made kids happy with their new toy! A big thank you goes out to Mary Lou Becker and her crew of family elves that organized Santa's workshop under trying conditions this year.
