An appeal from Pat Tallman (Lyta). Gifts will be delivered to the children on Dec. 12 so please ship any items donated before then. Money can be donated at any time.
We recently kicked off the Be A Santa program at Penny Laneâ€™s fundraising gala. Itâ€™s ofï¬cial! We are looking for donations of trees & decorations, and a truck! We are planning the parties. Everyone is getting excited.
We need your help!
This is a very small & personal program. We need everyone to help to make it work. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated!
How you can helpâ€¦
Who are the Penny Lane kids?
Penny Lane is a family treatment center that cares for the most difï¬cult to manage children with the highest quality care. These kids have been so sexually, emotionally and physically abused, they cannot be placed in regular foster care. We have children from all over California, Nevada and Arizona. The Be A Santa program focuses on the 104 teens in residence in the North Hills main facility and 9 satellite houses.
The Be A Santa program will bring the magic of the Holidays to the Children of the Penny Lane Home for abused Children who would not have a holiday otherwise. We will bring your personal message of caring to these special children. Your much needed Tax Deductible gift or donation will allow us to give or purchase requested Holiday Gifts to the kids, reminding them that people do care about them. Thank you for your support!
Penny Lane is a non proï¬t 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to those youngsters commonly known as the hard-to-place children, providing a safe and congenial, nurturing atmosphere for them as well as transitioning them when ready to the most appropriate environment and integrating them into the community.Your tax deductible donation will help us provide decorations & a holiday dinner, a gift bag of goodies including a gift card to the Westï¬eld Mall for as much $ as I can give them. We divide what we take in amongst the 104 kids. Last year we were able to give each child a $65 dollar card! Thanks to you!
All Angels, Santas and Elves are needed and greatly appreciated!
Because of you, these kids have a real Holiday!!!
