Giving and sharing was the joyful theme at Heart of Compassion’s Christmas Event in Montebello: Over 2,400 people attended Montebello-based Hearts of Compassion holiday food and toy giveaway on Saturday. The nonprofit organization recruited more than 200 jolly volunteers to help give out shopping carts full of free groceries, toys, clothes and even Christmas trees to the thousands of families, that included veterans, seniors and children, who showed up in hopes of having a Merry Christmas this year.
