Best event ever is right! So proud of Los Cerros each year when I read this story. Great job in caring for others. Sure missed it this year. Delivering the items to the charities is the most heart warming of all.

Over the years I've had the pleasure of driving the baskets and it's such a heart-warming experience to see the various organizations receive them and express their appreciation. This Los Cerros community effort is a great example of the good in people. Thank you for getting the word out to the local community about our children giving back to the world. How refreshing to read the news about what is going on that is right in the world, instead of what is wrong with the world! Thank you!
