Ramona VFW crew — waves as they head toward the Ramona Vista military housing to deliver toys, clothing and other gifts to 34 children on Saturday afternoon.

Santa’s Christmas Drive also includes trees, turkeys and gift cards for the rest of the Christmas meal for VFW Post 3783’s adopted military families. Money to pay for the annual event comes from the post’s Christmas in October dinner and other donations.

VFW and auxiliary members, Ramona Boys Scouts, Ramona Rotarians and Ramona High School Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps members participated in a gift wrapping party at the post, 2247 Kelly Ave., on Dec. 11.
