Can You Help?
order to support these organizations we are going
to need the help and participation from the community.
Participation: Do you work at a company with
twenty-five or more employees? Most companies want
to participate in a toy drive but don't know where
to start. Talk to your company office manager or
owner about placing a box in your lobby or lunchroom.
We provide the box, signs and will arrange for the
pick-up and distribution of the toys. This is an
easy way for your company to get involved and give
back to those less fortunate during the holiday
Participation: Do you belong to an Alumni or
school-based Association that would like to participate
in helping to gather toys for the Toy Drive? Serve
as a liaison between BlackNLA and your alumni, association or
other group with which you're involved .
Perhaps you could collect toys at a monthly meeting
or pool resources to make a monetary donation on
behalf of your alumni association. Contact us and
together we'll come up with a plan that suits your
Locations: Do you work at a location that is
open to the public or gets regular traffic from
the outside public? Then your company would make
a great drop-off location for those looking to donate
toys. In the past we have had cleaners, banks, cellular
stores, beauty salons, law offices and others act
as drop-off locations.
a participant, your company would be listed in our
drop-off location section so that those who live
and/or work in the area are able to drop off toys.
We provide the box and signs, as well as arrange
for the pick up and distribution of the toys. This
is a great way to get exposure for your company
and let BlackNLA members know where you
Do you have a flexible schedule? We are looking
for people to assist us in dropping off and picking
up the boxes for the Toy Drive.
Donations: Does your company manufacturer clothing
or goods that can be donated to these organizations?
These organizations are providing shelter and services
year round and have a great need for other tangible
goods, such as clothing, housing supplies, school
supplies and more.
Public/Private Events: Do you currently host
events or are you planning a holiday party? By encouraging
your audience to bring a new unwrapped toy, you
too can support the Toy Drive. This is a great way
to get people involved and public events will be
included in our listing of events that are participating
in the Toy Drive.
Unused Gift Cards: Do you have gift cards collecting dust at the bottom of your drawers? Do you know that many stores that don't traditionally sell toys do so during the holiday season? Bed Bath and Beyond, Macys and more.
Gift: If you don't have the time to go shopping
for a gift, BlackNLA will go shopping for you. Feel
free to send a check to BlackNLA.com, 8391 Beverly
Blvd, #433, Los Angeles, CA 90048 (put Toy Dive
in the notes section). To make a gift by credit card click here.
