FALLBROOK – In addition to their normal activities and meetings, the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club made two charitable donations during the month of August.
The car club recently made a donation to the Fallbrook Alumni Association to help them with the purchase of 75 backpacks and school supplies to be given to needy Fallbrook High students that are not financially able to purchase such necessities.
In early August of each year, a group of members from the Fallbrook Alumni Association purchase the backpacks and fill them with school supplies in an effort to help those needy students get off to a good start in school. After filling all of the backpacks, the group delivers them to Fallbrook High prior to the beginning of the school session which this year began on Aug. 11.
The alumni association also provides many other types of support to the high school including scholarships, senior student awards, and other financial contributions to the various school booster clubs.
The Vintage Car Club also made a donation recently to Operations Showers of Appreciation (OSOA) whose mission is to honor military families in a unique way by showering the expectant mothers with gifts for their soon-to-be-born infants.
Under the guidance of OSOA’s vice president, Courtney Hilborn, six to eight showers per year are held for the expectant mothers at Camp Pendleton which are funded by private donations from individuals and such charitable organizations as the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club. The donations go toward the purchase of store-bought gifts including such items as diapers, baby shampoos, bottles, nursing supplies, blankets, clothing and various other items of necessities for the newborn.
The Fallbrook Vintage Car Club is a local non-profit organization whose mission is to donate to the many Fallbrook non-profit organizations that are in need of financial support.
