About Pass the Hat 2021

Foothill Family was founded in 1926 in Pasadena, California by key community volunteer, Mrs. Josephine Marsh, who “passed the hat” to assist neighbors in need. She became the first director of the agency. To honor this humble origin, we continue Mrs. Marsh’s legacy by “passing the hat” to raise important funds for our client services through a friendly competition between teams. We also continue the tradition of honoring our most gracious community leaders by “tipping our caps” and thanking them for their service to Foothill Family.

This year, we are thrilled to "Tip our Caps" to our Community Storytellers, Clear Channel Outdoor, and how they are making a difference for Foothill Family, our clients and our community.

RSVP directly to your Team Captain to attend the in-person luncheon on October 20th!  Enjoy a fun-filled program including lunch, music, testimonials and highlights from the past year. 

You may give at any time before the event to help your Team get a lead start on the BIG WIN!!

The event concludes on October 20th when we "pass the hat" to raise funds for Foothill Family's vital services to continue the ongoing friendly competition between teams. 

Let's help raise critical funds for Foothill Family to provide essential services to those in our community who need support.

About our Honoree

Deemed an essential business during the global pandemic, Foothill Family was on the front lines from the beginning to support those most in need ­– families facing food, housing and employment insecurity, social isolation and lack of access to affordable, high-quality childcare for essential workers. 

Foothill Family reached out to Clear Channel Outdoor for ways to get the word out about the agency’s vital services so we could better provide support and resources to our community that was being hit so hard. Clear Channel simply asked, “How can we help?” They stepped up in every way to partner with us to vastly expand our reach through their enormous footprint in our service areas and let our community know we are here and we can help. Foothill Family is grateful for Clear Channel’s ongoing support, their strategic leadership, and desire to get involved to impact our community, together.
