CD 12 is proud to support two toy drives for underserved youth in our community. Both LAPD Devonshire PALS and the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission are seeking gifts for children this holiday season. Toys should be new and unwrapped and appropriate for children ages 2-18. Suggested items for kids include: Legos, sports equipment, art supplies, remote control cars, and crafts. Suggested items for teens include: sports equipment, scarves, hats, purses, jewelry, socks, sweatshirts, tote bags, and gift cards.
Both organizations are also looking for community groups and businesses to help by organizing toy drives and collecting personal donations. A toy collection box can be provided upon request. If you are interested, please contact (818) 882-1212 or councilmember.
Toys for either organization can be dropped off at our Community Service Center. Please indicate which organization you would like toys to go to at the time of drop off:
