Photograph caption dated December 21, 1962 reads, "Members of the San Fernando Valley Mental Health Association collected a record 6,800 Christmas gifts donated by Valley residents for patients at Camarillo State Hospital this year. Shown loading gifts in a truck at the association's headquarters at 15231 Sherman Way, Van Nuys, are Mrs. Keith Watts, Chatsworth, left; Mrs. Donald Bomeisler, Northridge, and Arne Lockert, coordinator of Valley services at the state hospital. Mrs. Bomeisler and her co-chairman, Mrs. Pat Bostrom, said the group's campaign this year took on new dimensions - ward gifts. Donated were a portable phonography [sic], an electric organ, a large refrigerator and coffee urns. The campaign is part of the Valley association's annual Remember the Unremembered drive."
