A Helping Hand for the Holidays

El Camino College has a long tradition of helping others, especially during the holidays. The 19th Annual CARE/CalWORKs Holiday Recruitment & Retention Celebration is set for Tuesday, Dec. 19. Members of the ECC community are invited to help celebrate the holidays by donating a new, unwrapped gift or toy for a child age 1 to 18. Donations can be scheduled for pickup or may be dropped off at the CARE and CalWORKs Office in the Student Services Center, Room 205B by Dec. 12. Every gift is greatly appreciated and will go directly to a child of one of our ECC students at the celebration. Many students are in great need and may not be able to afford gifts for their children this holiday.

The ECC Police Department is also collecting toys in support of our CARE/CalWORKs students. Please bring new and unwrapped toys to the Police Department lobby.
