Unified Conejo Springs into action — Collects $500 worth of toys for Safe Passages

On December 8th, with less than 24 hours notice, Unified Conejo sprang into action to contribute $500 worth of unwrapped toys to the Safe Passages program to help direct at-risk kids towards positive directions in life. This is a collaborative effort between CVUSD, Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, and Conejo Parks and Recreation.

The T.O. Acorn declined to publish this information, photograph or the name “Unified Conejo”, to attribute the specific donation.  The Acorn said they refused because if other specific groups asked, they would also deny their specific mention, too.

Timothy Bond, a founder of Unified Conejo (a loosely affiliated group of citizens engaging in civic opportunities to effect positive change in the Conejo Valley) was not quite sure why the Acorn took this position, but said “Fair enough,  we are just glad we could do this for the kids.  It appears we may have given 10-20% of total collected!  But since we are kept from pubic attention here, we probably won’t receive clarification on this.  Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah all!”

Thank you Citizens Journal!

I am unsure, of any valid journalistic reasons the Acorn had to deny reporting facts about things happening in direct support of a program (Safe Passages) reported on. What difference does it make to the program or a news outlet, who contributes? How about, [Just the facts, Ma’am]?

So, thank you CJ! You don’t shrink from reporting the facts, and the community desperately needs your services.
