LANCASTER — The Lancaster JetHawks, High-A California League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, are planning their annual JetHawks Holiday Caravan.

This year’s caravan kicked off Saturday as the JetHawks took to the streets for the Lancaster Holiday Parade.

“Being involved in the community is something our organization focuses on year round,” JetHawks Executive Vice-President Tom Backemeyer said. “The Holiday Caravan is just a small part of how our organization tries to give back to our community each year”

The caravan will continue throughout the holiday season with the JetHawks visiting several different organizations in the community. Along the way, the team will be handing out toys to kids, donated by the Flight Crew Booster Club, and delivering Holiday cheer to those who may be less fortunate.

This year’s caravan is as follows:

• Saturday, Dec. 8 — Palmdale Holiday Parade, 10 a.m.

• Saturday, Dec. 8 — A Magical BLVD Christmas, 6 p.m.

• Tuesday, Dec. 11 — Kaiser Permamente, 10 a.m.

• Friday, Dec. 14 — City of Hope, 3 p.m.

• Saturday, Dec. 15 — AV Hospital Holiday Jam and Pediatric Unit, noon.

• Tuesday, Dec. 18 — Grace Resources, 11 a.m.

• Thursday Dec. 20 — William J. “Pete” Knight Veterans Home, 11:30 a.m.

For details on how to donate to this year’s caravan, contact Jules Clyne with the JetHawks at 661- 726-5400.
