Thanks to the generosity of many in our community, 43 children in the Oceanside Apartments in San Simeon had a very Merry Christmas. On December 21, Santa (aka Rotarian Tom Tierney) along with a group of very helpful elves, delivered packages of gifts for each of the children and their parents. Cambria Rotary’s Secret Santa’s purchased 3 of the gifts the children asked for in their letter to Santa. An anonymous Cambria Rotary member donated a pair of shoes to each of the children. Cambria Connection and Cambria Rotary both gave each family gift cards for groceries, another anonymous donor gave each family a Target gift card, several San Simeon businesses chipped in so each family could receive household items (detergent, soap, shampoo, cleaning items, etc.) and Rotary donated a soccer ball to each of the kiddos. Needless to say, the children and their parents were thrilled, and the Rotary elves ended their evening with warm hearts.
