Holiday Giving Is a Brea Tradition

The Brea Resource Center takes a lead to assist families and individuals who need a little help to get by. During the holidays, the community’s generosity makes a real difference to brighten their outlook.There are several great ways to give!

The Brea Resource Center is underway with their Holiday Wish Program. A tree decorated with request tags is located at the Brea Community Center. The BRC seeks donations of various gift cards for items such as grocery, restaurant and retail cards, haircuts, auto services and more. These provide much needed support now as well as into the months ahead. Questions: 714-990-7150.

Non- perishable foods are collected by the Brea Community Emergency Council, a local non-profit. Boxes are located at schools and various city facilities for donations of canned and dry food goods. These will be sorted and distributed to deserving, pre-qualified households. Checks to help purchase additional perishable food, or provide for other necessities, can be payable to: BCEC at PO Box 8624, Brea, CA 92822. Questions: 714-337-7666.

Finally, Brea Fire stations and City facilities will accept toys, games and sporting goods for the Spark of Love/ Toys for Tots campaign. As needed, some of these donations are combined with food baskets distributed to Brea families with children in the household.

Help the BRC

At one time or another, each of us needs a little help. The BRC tries to offer that help by connecting the needs to the resources in our community. After all, it takes a village! Below are the various ways you can offer your help and support to your community.

Offer Your Services

If your business offers services (auto repair, hair cut, legal counsel, etc.) that meet a community need, we would be grateful to partner with you.

Donations of cash or general gift cards (grocery cards, gas cards, home repair cards, pet care cards, etc.) provide vital support to families and individuals in need.

Do you know a Brea family in need? Encourage them to set up a one-on-one appointment with BRC case management staff.

All donations go directly to Brea families who find themselves in need. Brea residency and family income are verified to ensure your tax-deductible donation is used wisely.

Contact us by email or by calling 714-990-7150 to inquire about lending a helping hand.
