By: Martha Garcia, Loomis News Editor
Volunteers from throughout the community assembled boxes of food Saturday morning at Doupnik Manufacturing. The Loomis Basin Christmas Baskets are for needy families from Loomis, Penryn, Ophir, Newcastle and Rocklin. They will be given enough food for a generous holiday meal. Children will also receive toys. According to Jennifer Doupnik, who coordinated the toy collection for the program, said there will be 250 more kids receiving toys this year than last year.
