Help the YMCA Give Thanksgiving Dinners to Struggling Families…
You can help ensure that struggling families in our community can have their own Thanksgiving dinner at home. To support the North Valley Family YMCA’s Annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive, you can donate canned goods, dried goods, stuffing, desert, vegetables, turkeys, gift cards or money. Every year, the YMCA donates more than 500 complete Thanksgiving dinners.

If you donate 20 cans, or a $20 check or grocery store gift card, the YMCA will give you a professional portrait photo of your child in their Halloween costume.

Sunday, October 7
10:00am to 4:00 pm
North Valley YMCA at Porter Ranch
11336 Corbin Ave., Northridge

No appointment is necessary. Bring your little trick or treater in their Halloween costume for their photo shoot, compliments of Divine Shots Photography. There is a limit of one 4 x 6 inch portrait per family, and is only offered for kids younger than 12 years old. The portrait will be available for pickup within 15 days.
