Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy Holidays from your Brookside Civic Association! Due to the pandemic, we’ve had to alter our originally planned holiday events, but with the holidays quickly approaching we do want to share a couple opportunities we have to celebrate the season!
First, we’ve been talking with Santa, and in order to celebrate the holidays in a safe and socially-distant way, he will be sending some of his elves to deliver goodie bags to the children in our neighborhood! If you would like to have your kid(s) participate, here’s what you need to do:
- Have your children write letters or draw pictures for Santa. Be sure to include your child/children’s names and your address.
- Drop off the letters in Santa’s mailbox on my front porch at: 2702 McVey Blvd. West no later than December 23rd.
- Santa’s elves will drop off Santa’s reply and goodie bags within two days so be sure to check your front porch!
Second, one of the many things we cherish about our neighborhood is how our neighbors always come together to offer assistance to those that are less fortunate. We’d like to continue that tradition by showing our support for our local community by collecting donations for the Smoky Row Food Pantry. We will collect donations through December 31st. You can contribute by filling out the donation form.
We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!
