LINCOLN BOULEVARD — The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica is seeking donations for its Family Assistance Fund, which is used to buy gifts for needy families during the holiday season.

Family Assistance Fund also provides clothing, groceries for Thanksgiving and holiday meals, school supplies, appliances, furniture and other home essentials.

To make it happen, the Boys & Girls Club is asking the community for in-kind donations, discount offers from retailers and cash contributions.

The organization will receive matching funds up to $10,000.

All money will go directly to families in need, and some will help pay for the club’s Thanksgiving dinner, and the holiday dinner on Dec. 22.

Approximately 350 children fill the Main Branch gym for the Thanksgiving meal each year.

The Boys & Girls Club has served young people and families in Santa Monica for 67 years. The Family Assistance Fund supports approximately 500 families throughout the campaign.

To donate, visit the Boys & Girls Club website at or contact Jennifer Vides at or (310) 361-8520.
