CCF’s Holiday Donations Make Spirits Bright

February 04, 2014

Throughout the month of December, Associates joined the Carrington Charitable Foundation to spread cheer, generosity and good will to children and families around the United States. By donating toys, gift cards, food, and other items, Carrington Associates proved they value giving by enthusiastically providing gifts to deserving children and families during the holiday season.

The CCF Board of Directors (Rosemary Rose, Lorna Gordon, and Lynn Ozonian) shares, “Congratulations to ALL of you! What a wonderful way to start the Holiday Season! You have touched so many families with your kindness and heartfelt good will. The CCF Board is very proud of your efforts – we are spreading the news that the Carrington Family cares and delivers support to our neighbors in need. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
CCF’s Holiday Donations Make Spirits Bright

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Snowflake Wishes

At Carrington’s Santa Ana, Irvine, and Aliso Viejo offices, Associates generously granted gift wishes through CASA, an organization that helps abused or neglected children. CCF donated over 200 gifts that represent gift wishes from children of all ages, which were wrapped by CCF volunteers and opened during a Christmas party held by CASA.


In Santa Ana CCF delivered gifts, gift cards and groceries to a total of 28 deserving families through the Adopt-a-Family program. With the help of White Van Real Estate Services (including Santa and his elf), over 120 children throughout Orange County were given gifts from their wish list and food for Christmas dinner.

CCF volunteers even strapped a live Christmas tree to the car roof that was requested by one of the children! Carrington Associates joined together with their friends, family, or as a department to make the season a little brighter for families through Families Forward and the Women’s Shelter of Long Beach charities.

Toys for Tots

In various Carrington locations, CCF collected toys for children of all ages for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots programs. Carrington Associates eagerly overflowed bins with dolls, stuffed animals, games, and other toys to bring joy to children this holiday season.
