The Kern County Department of Human Services is opening its annual Holiday Cottage on Nov. 27 and celebrating 30 years of community partnerships.

The cottage opens at 11 a.m. that day at its new location, 2765 Calloway Drive, Ste. 104.

The Holiday Cottage brightens Christmas for foster children by displaying their wish letters on trees that line its wall. Visitors can then pick up gifts based on the wish letters and return them to the cottage.

The cottage will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Dec. 11.
