Organizations: Boy Scouts wrapping gifts for donations

December 04, 2010

The Delphi Academy's Boy Scout Troop 555 is once again wrapping gifts for shoppers from Dec. 13 to 24 at the Sport Chalet, 975 Foothill Bvd., La Cañada Flintridge. The schedule will be posted at Sport Chalet.

This is Boy Scout Troop 555's ninth year helping the community and Sport Chalet, which offers the complimentary gift wrapping to Sport Chalet customers for a donation to Troop 555. The Scouts will wrap everything from the smallest gift to the largest items such as bicycles and ping-pong tables.

The Scouts use the money from donations to help pay for their upcoming camping adventures and are especially motivated as they have planned a "Road Trip" for 2011 touring the Western states, which includes camping at the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park. They will have dinner at the top of the Seattle Space Needle and on the way home, visit a cranberry farm in Oregon and explore the many sights in San Francisco.


Nominations accepted for legacy awards

Over the past several years, the YWCA of Glendale has honored Women of Heart & Excellence at the annual Legacy Luncheon. The purpose of this award is to recognize exceptional and dynamic women in the local communities, whose work and/or volunteer service are creating legacies of love, strength and leadership.

The event also helps raise money for the Domestic Violence Project and EncorePlus, which is a breast and cervical cancer screening program for low-income women. These two nationally recognized programs serve women and children not only in Glendale, but also in the surrounding communities.

Nominations are being accepted until Jan. 10. Recipients will be honored at the annual Legacy Luncheon on March 31 at the Castaway Restaurant in Burbank.

For a nomination form contact Carol Ann Burton at or call (818) 243-7654.
