A Christmas celebration will be held Dec. 3 for about 1,000 of Riverside County youths in foster care who will receive meals and gifts and participate in a variety of activities.

The second annual “Winter Wonderland” event at Harvest Christian Fellowship conducted by the Riverside County Office of Education will include ice skating, a musical light show, a sledding hill containing real snow, carnival games, gift giveaways, photos with Santa Claus, food booths and related activities

“This event represents an opportunity to wrap our community’s collective arms around students who are deserving of positive reinforcement, loving kindness and a fresh reminder of the importance of hope for the future,” Superintendent of Schools Edwin Gomez said.
