LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) and non-profit youth center A Place Called Home (APCH) today distributed gifts to children as part of a holiday effort that provides toys, clothing and books to thousands of children in the Los Angeles area.
Herbalife Family Foundation officials and LA Galaxy players attended the gift bag distribution and also contributed branded products for the gift bags. Local children also had the opportunity to share their wishes with Santa, play with LA Galaxy mascot Cozmo and climb and sled on 30 tons of snow.
