243 Anaheim residents receive holiday gifts at Orange County Family Justice Center

The holiday music is playing, kids are running up to Santa Claus to share their wishes, and cart after cart of wrapped holiday gifts are being wheeled out to families at the Orange County Family Justice Center in Anaheim. 

This year, donors bought gifts for 53 families — that’s 243 people, 101 children, and 55 teenagers at the center’s annual Adopt-a-Family event, with an average of three gifts per person. 

So many gifts were donated that the center had to use four rooms to store them all, said Program Director Stephanie Bruschini of the Orange County Family Justice Center Foundation.
