An annual and magical tradition took place at the Novato Youth Center on Thursday, December 19th, thanks to the big hearts of the Novato Fire District and the Rotary Club of Ignacio. Santa arrived in a fire-truck and listened to the children’s wishes one- by-one. He then encouraged each child to choose a gift from the array of toys made possible by the Novato Fire District’s Annual Toy Drive. This 18 year tradition was made possible by the work and generosity of many, and helps to ensure that all children served by the Novato Youth Center will have gifts to open during the holiday season.
The Novato Youth Center is a private non profit 501c3 serving over 3,400 youth and families annually since 1976. To learn more, please visit www.novatoyouthcenter.org.
