HELPING HANDS—Madi McMichael of Thousand Oaks sorts the donated items during the Coats for Casa Pacifica drive. In addition to playing in the snow, people of all ages took part in arts and crafts and drank free coffee and smoothies while they dropped off their gently used warm clothing items. The annual event benefits Casa Pacifica in Camarillo, an organization that offers free services and shelter to at-risk youth and their families.
