On Saturday, December 18th, 2021, Antelope Valley Transit Authority, in partnership with a team of generous sponsors, will host the Holiday Drive Thru Grocery and Toy Giveaway.
Turkeys, holiday meal supplies, groceries, toys, and clothing will be distributed at the AVTA Bus facility located at 42210 6th Street West, Lancaster, CA 93534 from 9 AM to 2 PM (while supplies last).
