This year marked the fifth year of SMSCF funding for the Holiday Basket Project organized by the Saratoga Foothill Club. This grass roots effort rallies volunteers and donors to help those in need. Baskets of food are distributed to those who live in low-income housing, seniors, and others in need in our community. Churches and schools work with the Club to identify individuals and families who might benefit. The Foothill Club has been doing this work since 1952. Members gather the fixings for a holiday meal, gift certificates, and other items from merchants and prepare a gift basket for each family.
