The holiday season is upon us, and our Canyons Family will once again be lending a helping hand in our community!  Our 2019 Holiday Food Drive that was held in conjunction with our Cranberry Classic Invitational Swim Meet was a HUGE success, and we are proud to announce that our 2020 Holiday Food Drive is here, and will be benefitting the Castaic Food Distribution Warehouse, which is part of a wonderful non profit organiztion that has been serving the needs of Los Angeles County since 1995.

How you can participate -

*Bring non-perishable food donations (see suggestion list below) to the Cranberry Time Trials on Saturday, November 21st.  Volunteers will be set up in front of the Skate Park to collect and tally your donations.  There will be a team competition to see which of our swim groups can bring in the most items! 

*Sign up to volunteer at the food donation table during the morning of Cranberry Time Trials, taking in and tallying donations, and helping to load them into volunteer's cars/trucks

*Sign up to provide your SUV/truck to load food donations into during the morning of Cranberry Time Trials, and then keep the donations overnight and join us to deliver them to the Castaic Food Distribution Warehouse (31910 Castaic Road) on Sunday, November 22nd at 12pm.  (If providing a truck, we do ask that it either have a secured bed cover/shell, or that you are able to park in your garage overnight, so that donations can be securely stored.)

*Sign up to meet us at the Castaic Food Distribution Warehouse on Sunday, November 22nd at 12pm to help offload donations - wear your Canyons gear and let's make this a team effort!
