Last Wednesday, November 22nd, from 2 to 5pm the Imperial Beach Boys and Girls Club fed about 500 Kids and Families in their annual Feed the Kids and Families event which has been going on now for over 20 years. Events like this would not be successful without the help they received from people behind the scenes. This included but was not limited to help by the Imperial Beach/South Bay Kiwanis, IB Fire Department and others from the City of IB, and of course, the IB Boys & Girls Club and many others who gave willingly of their time.
This year they had a couple of surprise guests. They had the Pad Squad, a group from the San Diego Padres baseball team and Hippie Santa showed up and both kids young and old lined up to have their photo taken with him.
