2022 has been a good year for many following the exit from the pandemic. Still, other families are suffering from a lack of income and now spiraling prices for food and fuel. There’s no doubt we are experiencing both inflation and a recession at the same time.
This year’s Rossmoor Toy Drive is set to benefit dozens and dozens of families that The Youth Center is assisting this holiday season. The drive has two options to help you help these local families in need:
- Make a donation directly to The Youth Center so the staff there can buy the specific items these families need.
– OR –
- Bring an unwrapped gift or gift card to one of the wonderful Toy Drive Helper drop-off locations listed below between now and Saturday, December 10th. You can also bring the gift/gift cards to the Rossmoor Winter Festival and drop them off at the RHA Booth.
The Rossmoor Homeowners Association in partnership with Ganahl Lumber, the Friends of the Los Alamitos/Rossmoor Library, and the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Los Alamitos are sponsoring the Rossmoor Holiday Toy Drive to benefit The Youth Center and the local families they are serving this holiday season.
The Rossmoor Holiday Toy Drive is simple.
You have two (actually, three) ways to participate:
The easiest way is to make a donation directly to The Youth Center and let them take care of buying the specific gifts and gift cards that are most needed.
Drop off a gift card (from Target, Ralphs, Vons, or Wal-Mart) or a new, unwrapped gift to either the Los Alamitos/Rossmoor Library (the Friends of the Library have the donation box on the Patio), Ganahl Lumber (box is in the front by the registers), the Fairfield Inn & Suites, or at The Youth Center offices during business hours between November 4th and December 10th. Toys should be for ages 3 to 17 as this year the Youth Center is helping dozens of families in need.
And the third way you can help, is if you would like to adopt a family for the holidays, the Youth Center has an adopt-a-family program that has many more deserving families in need than generous individuals or families available to help. Find out more about the program here.
