The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) of San Benito County distributes toys to local children over the holiday. This year, the LULAC’ Youth Council wrapped and distributed more than 400 toys to local children.

LULAC first held its toy distribution in 1997, when members decided to help local kids in need, primarily through networking with migrant education instructors and seeking donations from the Santa Clara County Fire District Station in Morgan Hill. This partnership continues until present day.

LULAC also works closely with Union Bank of San Benito County and wishes to extend its appreciation to the bank’s customers, as they have provided toy donations as part of the bank’s holiday tree ornament sponsorship.

“LULAC is proud to bring the true meaning of the holidays to so many local children. So much joy would not be possible without the support of our community partners,” said Cesar Flores, LULAC president. The LULAC youth also take pride in assisting the Chamberlain’s Children Center with its annual gift wrapping that benefits foster youth.

The League of United Latin American Citizens wishes all San Benito County residents a special holiday season.
