Breakfast with Santa

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year 2016!

We were able to feed some very need people from Tustin with a pancake and bacon breakfast with fruit. Robert Van Hyning took photos with Santa. Our own Assisteens helped our visitors to make crafts. Everybody left with some tasty christmas cookies and a smile on their face.

A special thank you to Mr. Leupold, John Moore, and Greg Del Crognale for cooking up a scrumptious breakfast. Also, thank you to Girl Scout Troop #1863 for participating in this special event.

We couldn’t have made this all happen without the help of Tyron Jackson and his helpers from OPERATION WARM WISHES.
