will you help a child in need?


For 130 years, Five Acres, has been caring for children and families in need. While there are nearly 100 children that live full time at the Altadena Five Acres campus, there are thousands of local families that get support from this amazing charitable agency.

While the core goal of Five Acres is to find permanent homes for the children it cares for, it doesn’t happen overnight and when the holidays come around, it can be particularly challenging for these children.

To help bring some joy and hope to these children, Five Acres has been collecting toys to bring some much needed smiles. Last year I volunteered to help and I will do it again this year.

In 2017, twenty Bungalow Heaven residents participated, and I am hoping many more will this come on board this year. Please spread the word, it truly is for a great cause.

It Is Easy To Participate

Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Purchase a New toy or gift that a child would like (see suggestions list below)
