A time for fun

 

These children, who are students in the Ravenswood City Elementary School District, were among those who gathered in East Palo Alto on Dec. 11 to receive toys and games from the nonprofit Peace Builders organization, headed by Woodside resident Diane Eskanazi.

About 2,000 toys were distributed, she said. Many children in the district are living in shelters or couch-surfing or living 15 to 30 people in a room, Ms. Eskanazi said.

A second toy distribution to local charities was held Dec. 18 at Woodside Village Church.
