Our 50th Year Celebration is slowly drawing to a close, as we capped off our half-decade with a well-attended Luncheon Event on October 22, 2015 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel's Starview Room. It was easy to see that Valley Interfaith Council has many supporters from all walks of the San Fernando Valley. Churches, Synagouges, and Parishes were well represented, as were many service organizations and other local groups who all work together toward's VIC's mission.
The Daily News featured Valley Interfaith Council in an article run in conjunction with the luncheon event. Click here to Read!
Our shining moment of the event was a service auction, held to benefit our growing Meals on Wheels Program. Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritious lunches to those who cannot shop or cook on their own in the Valley. The auction raised funds which will sponsor those in need to receive meals in their homes.
