A host of stars will be at the Los Angeles Mission on Christmas Eve to help spread good will for the holiday season.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will join Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), Roxy Olin (Brothers and Sisters), Carolyn Hennesy (Cougartown), Stephanie Pratt (The Hills), Boo Boo Stewart (Twilight Eclipse), Donal Logue (The Patriot), Gilles Marini (Sex and the City), Victor Webster (Melrose Place), Rick Yune (Ninja Assassin), Jeremy London (Rain from Stars), and of course Santa at the Mission to feed the homeless.
Tough economic times hit the poor and homeless in countless ways – and at Christmas time the impact can be heartbreaking. Not enough money for necessities means not enough for toys for the children either.
The Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Event will provide some relief for families and children with generous donations of thousands of toys and other gifts that will be distributed that day – including thousands of coats for men, women and children. Hundreds of volunteers from the entertainment industry, political leaders and others will bring the joy of the season to Skid Row.
The event starts at 11am on December 24 on the corner of Fifth and Wall Street in LA.
