Christmas dreams came true for families of the West End Family Kinship Center in Fontana thanks to Marc Wims, owner of Fontana Nissan, who hosted the holiday party December 20.

Now 30 members strong, the West End Family Kinship Drum Line and its Drill Team were center stage and had guests moving to the beat with a spectacular display and a spiritual performance by the Praise Team of North Fontana Church raised the roof!

More than 75 kids and their grandparents or relatives celebrated the season at the party hosted by Fontana Nissan. President of the dealership Marc Wims worked with sponsors to donate just under $5,000 worth of donations so that no child would go without a gift this Christmas.

"Fontana Nissan is about community as a core foundation and stepping stone," Wims said. Hosting the holiday celebration for the West End Family Kinship Center at our dealership is just one small way we all can contribute. It was great to see so much happiness and joy this afternoon and we are proud to be a partner in helping to make a difference in the lives of children. Also I wish to thank our fellow sponsors for helping make this day truly wonderful."

"People in our community have been a blessing to the Kinship Center," said Mary Hunter, a grandparent raising her three grandchildren. "Marc's (Wims) support has helped us so much. He was instrumental in helping to obtain approval for our federal grant by bringing us into the spotlight with the city and the press over the last year. The holiday party he hosts for our families and kids is a huge gift to the West End Family Kinship Center in so many ways."

Fontana Nissan is located at 16,444 South Highland Avenue in Fontana between Citrus and Sierra off Highway 210.
