Tender Loving Cause, or TLC, has been organizing volunteers to provide a free Christmas meal to residents of the Morongo Basin for the past 29 years. But feeding 5,000 people a turkey and ham dinner with all the sides isn’t the only thing TLC does. The organization also provides gift packages to children and shut-ins. Tender Loving Cause will hold a “Stuff the Bus” event this week to gather donations of non-perishable food, toys, stuffed animals and new clothes. The bus will be at Walmart in Yucca Valley December 3 and 4; at the Z107.7 studio in Joshua Tree December 5, and at the Hi-Desert Star parking lot in Yucca Valley December 6. All times are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will also be entertainment and caroling at the events.
