‘Tis the season of giving and love!
Day 223 of 365 Things To Do in Pasadena shares with you a wonderful community event.
This Saturday, December 25th The Union Station Homeless Services will be hosting their annual Christmas Day Dinner-in-the-Park from 12:00-2:00 pm.
For over 30 years, The Union Station of San Gabriel Valley has been providing holiday meals in Pasadena’s Central Park for our less fortunate community members on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
On Christmas Day over 2,000 toys are distributed to children in the community at the Central Park Santas Village.
Union Station Services offers a wonderful opportunity for a warm holiday meal and celebration to many who do not have family to celebrate with, seniors who are alone, and families that are not able to afford a meal.
By donating a new unwrapped toy, fixings for a meal, or your time, you can help spread Christmas cheer and ensure that theses efforts will be carried on to serve the community for many more years to come!
