Families from the Village School - an independent private coeducational elementary day school in the Pacific Palisades - and the Culver City-based Mar Vista Family Center will come together this Sat. Dec. 15 at noon in the Center’s courtyard at 5075 S. Slauson Ave. Culver City, to celebrate the holidays by exchanging gifts and celebrating with music, food and folklore.
The holiday party will feature an appearance by Santa Claus, Christmas caroling, dance performances, arts and crafts, food booths, guided tours and other family activities.
The Mar Vista Family Center provides low-income families with early childhood education, youth enrichment, and educational tools for more than 1,300 children, teens and adults impacted by violence, poverty and lack of education.
The event marks the second year that Village School’s students, parents and administrators have ‘adopted’ the Mar Vista Family Center during the holiday season to help provide hot meals and needed items for the center’s after-school program and recreational activities.
