The event also kicks off NCVV’s 11th Annual Holiday Food Drive, benefiting the North Hollywood Food Pantry. Hundreds of Angelenos go hungry each year, including far too many in the San Fernando Valley. The problem is especially severe now given the increasing homeless population and the victims of the Woolsey fire.  You can help those in need by donating non-perishable goods, including unexpired canned goods and boxed food, until the end of December.

Donations can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Carter Sexton Fine Artist Materials – 5308 Laurel Canyon Blvd.
  • Marie et Cie – 11704 Riverside Drive
  • Office, Faith Presbyterian Church, 5000 Colfax AvenueChurch

…or bring your donations to the NCVV table at Magnolia and Whitsett during Light Up Valley Village
