FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Vintage Car Club recently presented donations of funds to three community organizations – the Fallbrook Citizens' Crime Prevention Committee, Fallbrook Garden Club, and Fallbrook Girls Softball League.

Funds presented to the Fallbrook Citizens' Crime Prevention Committee are for its GANAS, (Guide, Advise, Nurture, and Support) monitoring program which has six after-school mentoring sites in high crime areas for underserved youths, ages 9-18. One of the major goals of the mentoring program is to steer these children away from the allure of gangs, drugs, and criminal activity. This criminal activity is said to now include human trafficking, which will be addressed at an upcoming presentation by the committee.

Fallbrook Garden Club will use the donated funds to help in the effort to re-landscape the Fallbrook Senior Center. All plantings are scheduled to be drought-tolerant, California native plants.

Funds given to the Fallbrook Girls Softball League will benefit the 150 girls between the ages of 6 and 14 that participate in it. The league's Opening Day, Feb. 20, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. at Ingold Sports Park will include the playing of the National Anthem, followed by photos, games, face painting and lots of fun and activities for everyone.
