Santa Claus, Second Food Harvest, 49ers Academy and Ravenswood School District will be distributing toys for the children of East Palo Alto on Saturday December 16th and are seeking gift donations for their children. Anything appropriate for boys and girls ages 2-12 would be greatly appreciated. A gift that always bring smiles are bicycles. Gift wrapped would be a bonus but not required. A financial dontation is also appreciated so we can buy the toys ourselves.
In addition, kids from the Stand-Up for Kids program Silicon Valley (http://www.standupforkids.org/siliconvalley) will also be in need of a christmas gift. There are about 40 kids who are not assured of any presents from Santa. Items that are usually helpful are shoes or gift cards. Last year, we received financial donations and were able to purchase shoes for over 30 kids.
Turn180 will be purchasing gifts for kids from the financial donations provided and will be delivering them as well. If you have a present that you would like to donate, please email me to arrange a pickup.
