Following in the same successful pattern of previous years, families will be provided warm, nutritious meals and grocery gift cards and children will be provided with multiple Christmas gifts to take home in the spirit of giving.

Sean Shamim of Quiet Cannon also commented stating, “This event would not be possible without the support of Brad Perrin, Bucky Dennis and the compassionate volunteers and donors. For the last 36 years they have made Christmas a wonderful and cheerful experience for the community.”

    Christmas at the Cannon is organized, operated and funded solely by benevolent volunteers and generous contributors. The organization is currently accepting donations to fund gift procurement, holiday entertainment, and winter wonderland elements that will bring holiday cheer to Montebello.
