As the families left the event, ham with all the fixings awaited them; giving dinners that bring people together.

There was 150 ham dinners that were giving out thanks to the Aquarius Casino Resort, 4 pallets of new toys from the Marine base in Barstow, additional new toys from The Healing Center in Needles, and the new bicycles were purchased by Set Free Church of Needles thanks to ‘Blessings’ from the community; work that is done around the community by its members which funds raised go towards the purchasing of these new bicycles.
