ALPINE -----The annual Gift Bag Drive by local realtor Jeff Campbell is under way again in East San Diego County!
The major effort to help families eat full meals, keep babies adequately clothed and provide games for underprivileged children is in its 16th year.
Most people know it’s fun to give as well as get presents any time, but especially during Christmas and the year-end holidays.
Along with the decorations, the shopping and the special activities are memories of the best gifts we gave to others.
That’s true for members of the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce, too.
“The best Christmas gift I ever gave was four years ago,” said Abigail Allen, owner of Pacific Crest Ranch in Alpine. “I surprised my family with a trip to San Francisco for New Years Eve.”
