Twenty-two San Fernando Valley families who can't afford much of a holiday will have toys to open and a dinner to feast on this season, if some anonymous Santas pitch in. A donations drive dubbed "Santa Anonymous," which is sponsored by local businesses, is asking San Fernando Valley residents to bring food, clothing, toys and blankets to seven drop-off locations across the Valley. The packages will go to families identified by local schools as needing a bit of extra help over the holidays.
