COLLECT Toys & Gift Cards (for teenagers)

  • If you work in an office, organize a toy drive within your company…
  • If you belong to a alumni or association – organize a group donation day among members, or co-host a Holiday Mixer.
  • If you work at a company with items to donate to the youth – toys, as well as personal hygiene and clothing, are needed.
  • Do you have unused gift cards? We can use those to purchase gifts.

Those interested in participating in this year’s Toy Drive should contact BlackNLA.com by e-mail toydrive@blacknla.com.

Last holiday season, BlackNLA members, website visitors, and corporate contributors teamed up to provide toys, books, games, clothing, toiletries, electronics, CDs, videos, and other suitable gifts to more than 800 children in LA area. This is a grassroots community program designed to provide gifts for children and teenagers up to age 17. All donations, large and small, put some cheer into the holidays for a child who may otherwise not have received any gift at all.
