Robla Holiday Market delivers holiday spirit to families in need
On December 17, United Way hosted a holiday market at Robla Elementary for local families in need. Parents were invited to shop the market for free and select from donated gifts for their children.
Due to the generosity of local donors, a team of 15 United Way volunteers helped deliver holiday presents to more than 150 local kids.

“We talk a lot about the holidays being merry and bright, but for too many families in our community, it’s hard to feel merry when your future is uncertain and your kids don’t even have a warm coat to get through the winter,” said Stephanie Bray, president and CEO, United Way California Capital Region. “All children deserve a bright future, and that’s why our Square One Project works to ensure all kids in our community have the support they need year-round so they can focus on school and succeed in life.”
