In 1936, with a starter fund from the Burbank Noon Kiwanis, we began the Summer Camp Program. This program allows children of lower income a week at summer resident or day-camp. Annually we send 100 to camps.

In 1996 the name was changed to “Holiday Basket Pro-gram” We coordinate with Churches, PTAs, Studios, Individuals, Businesses, Clubs, City Offices Family Service Agency, and BTAC to provide Holiday Baskets of food and toys to low income families with school age children. We have served over 2600 people annually.
