Well in the Desert is again planning its annual Christmas event as a mobile event due to COVID-19 restrictions, organizers said this week.

The drive-up event will be held Saturday, December 18, from 11:30 AM until 3 PM at The United Methodist Church, 1555 East Alejo Rd.

As in years past, volunteers will distribute a frozen turkey and pie, as well as gifts for children to open on Christmas Day to any family in need. Santa and Mrs. Clause will be on hand, and entertainment will be provided by Mariachi al Amanecer.

Organizers said they cannot make the event possible without the generosity of the community and local businesses. Any business that can place a toy collection box in their store is asked to contact The Well at 760-285-7297.

Toys and turkeys are also needed. Community members who can afford to help are asked to donate toys in the $15-$20 range, as well as turkeys in the 16-pound range. you can contact the number above if you wish to make donations.

In addition, St. Paul in the Desert will be collecting gifts to give to the children at this Christmas event. They may be dropped off at the church anytime.
