Tomorrow, Sun May 6th, is the 6th Annual Soap Box Derby. 10am-2pm, Farmers Insurance Building Parking Lot, Opposite City of Westlake Village City Hall and Library, 31051 Agoura Road, Westlake Village — and the event has everything from Soap Box races to a NASCAR display, Car Show, Magicians, Games Music, Community BBQ, Obstacle Course, and Sheriff and Fire Dept displays.
This year’s Soap Box Derby event once again includes Big Sunday, and is a chance for Westlake Village and surrounding area residents an easy to give back to the community and help those in need.
Over the past couple of weeks, Big Sunday volunteers have been collecting food and clothing at several local schools. At Soap Box, volunteers will be unloading many of the collected items from a truck at the event site, sorting them into areas by food type, then boxing them and labeling them so they can be put into the storage unit and pull them out as they are needed. When everything is sorted, it will all get loaded back onto the truck to go to distribution center. While the sorting goes on, there will also be a “craft” project.
If you have any food or clothing items that you’d like to donate (or collect from others), please bring those with you as well. Here’s what donation center has requested:
– Food (non-perishable items)
– Clothing of any type
– Shoes of any type
– School supplies (including back packs)
– Baby items (e.g., diapers, sealed baby food or formula, wipes, toys)
– Cooking/kitchen items (bowls, pots, plates, silverware, etc…)
Again, Big Sunday will be held in conjunction with the Triunfo YMCA’s Soapbox Derby, Car Show, BBQ, Obstacle Course, DJ, NASCAR Exhibit, and more. So there will be lots of other fun things going on. Come do some work and have fun as well!
Bring any of your donations to the event. If you have a large amount, please contact Dave Moorman so that we can arrange for an easier drop off.
