2020 HOMETOWN CHRISTMAS PARADE CANCELED
It is with a heavy heart that Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers has officially canceled the 2020 Hometown Christmas Parade. This comes after evaluating several factors including the overwhelming need to ensure the health and well-being of everyone involved.
“It was an incredibly difficult decision, but a necessary one. I want to thank everyone for their ongoing efforts to keep our community healthy. I know COVID-19 has made many changes in our lives and I want to thank you for your continued patience,” says Mayor Weiers.
Though the parade has been canceled, the annual food drive is still in full swing. Volunteers will be collecting non-perishable and monetary donations to benefit Glendale’s own Hope for Hunger Food Bank. “I invite the community to come out and donate, because we know that more people will need help this year,” said Mayor Weiers.
Non-perishable food donations can be dropped off in food drive boxes located in Glendale City Hall (5850 W. Glendale Avenue) throughout November and December. Donations will also be accepted Saturday, Nov. 14, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at both the Sam’s Club and Walmart stores located on the southeast corner of 83rd and Union Hills Avenue. Tax deductible donations can also be made below.
Event proceeds and donations go to support:
