SCGrocery operates as a fully voluntary non-profit organization serving a week of groceries and personal care items including fresh milk, eggs, produce, canned goods, dry goods, meat, cold cuts and bread, according to their website.

Viking Charities, which helped donate the turkeys, is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit founded in 1950.

The donation of turkey by Vikings and the Sheriff’s Station followed SCGrocery’s toy distribution on Main Street to families in need on December 18, which included live holiday shows and a Santa float.

“We started this when we realized there were a lot of families in need and after the pandemic that number increased tenfold,” Grose said during the toy giveaway.

SCGrocery has received significant support this holiday season, including a $ 3,000 grant awarded to it by the local Santa Clarita Valley Albertsons and their affiliated supermarkets.
