SBVC Hosts Toy Giveaway for Hundreds of Children via "Let It Snow Festival"

San Bernardino Valley College recently partnered with the “Let It Snow” Festival to host a toy giveaway this holiday season. The local nonprofit group raised close to $15,000 for toy purchases, which were then distributed in a drive-through event on the SBVC campus this December. The event was free and open to the community, and helped to spread holiday cheer to hundreds of children. “Let It Snow” Festival founder and organizer Abigail Alberts said a flood of donations were received from local businesses.

Over the past few weeks, bouncy balls, backpacks, children’s books and other fun items were collected and distributed for this festive occasion. Despite having to cancel its annual Ho Ho Parade and photos with Santa Claus, event organizers were still able to distribute gifts to as many as 800 children in the community.
