December. 2020. We are just as much in awe as you are in that: 1, it’s already December and 2, how long this year has been! We’re almost rounding the corner on 2020 to head into 2021 with high hopes, clean hands, and navidad masks.

Whether you find yourself in Rocky Point, or catching up on our beachside town from afar, we invite you to join in the holiday season by taking part in one or another of the several food, toy, blanket, and coat drives across the community.   Be sure to visit our Holiday Drive Guide.
