Halloween Haunted House

Every Halloween Ella Hill Hutch Community Center gets turned into a haunted house for the local community members. This provides a safe space for our youngsters to safely collect candy and gives them the opportunity to build community amongst one another.

Holiday Food Box

As a way of giving back to our local community, we partner with local housing sites and other CBOs to set up a list of families that are most in need for the holidays. Thanks to our partnership with Bi-Rite Market, we are able to acquire fresh vegetables and turkeys to distribute amongst more than 700 families.

Holiday Toy Drive

Every year, we host a special Wakanda Winter Wonderland for the local community. We give out free toys, have games, rides, arts and crafts, and food for our young ones to enjoy.
