Downtown Glendale will be a place where generosity and compassion are celebrated for the holidays during Glendale Glitters. And you can help St. Mary’s Food Bank during the special “Spirit of Giving” Weekend.
Friday, Dec. 11, and Saturday, Dec.12, from 6-10 p.m. each night, join in the fun and enjoy 1.5 million lights and all kinds of entertainment for the entire family. Glendale is honoring and celebrating many nonprofit organizations and companies that give back to the Glendale community, including the West Valley Child Crisis Center, Donor Network of Arizona, the Swift Branch and The Boys and Girls Club.
Glendale’s Spirit of Giving event will also have St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance on hand, collecting canned food items to benefit to the less fortunate during this holiday season. Last year, the event collected enough food to help provide 10,186 meals to needy families and this year, with demand increasing, event organizers hope to exceed that number.
The Spirit of Giving weekend in downtown Glendale offers free admission, and will also feature food and beverages, horse-drawn carriages rides with special mini-pony rides, inflatable rides and visits with Santa Claus. For more information, visit www.GlendaleGlitters.com.
