                   Our holiday season is upon us!  

Each year our Gilroy Foundation Youth Board helps to make wishes come true for 100 children in our Gilroy community.  Our Youth Board, consisting of 23 dedicated kids from 7 schools, work with Rebekah Children's Services.

We will have a Giving Tree up at Westside Grill starting December 2 - December 22.  Please stop by and take an ornament off the tree.  Each ornament is labeled with the name, age and request of each child.  

The Gilroy Foundation Youth Board thanks you in advance for supporting their cause this holiday season.
