San Bernardino’s Crossroads Rotary has teamed with the local Salvation Army and Loma Linda Medical Center to bring some Christmas spirit and plenty of goodies to Inland Empire’s disadvantaged youth and their families.

“The Jubilee Committee and Family Services,” notes Rotary event chairman and Jubilee Chief Executive Officer Kirk Dunbar, “as a recent part of Rotary, has come up with 1,000 pairs of free shoes for our expected huge turnout. This will be our second year doing this, but our first partnering with the San Bernardino Salvation Army. We certainly hope this project will become an annual team effort.”

Dunbar estimates more than a thousand people will attend the October event, appropriately titled “Christmas in October.”

He adds, “There will be all those shoes for kids ages 5-19, of course, but we’ll also have clothes along with toys and a huge free meal.”

The Christmas in October Festival will actually be the 31st of the month, between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Salvation Army’s 5th Street facility.
