LASD 2012 Toy Drive. Inspire A Child: Donate A Toy!

One way to make a needy child feel happy and included in the celebration of the holiday season is to donate a toy. While providing hours of fun and a lasting memory, a single toy can inspire learning, sharing and personal enrichment. A new toy would mean so much, especially to a child who might not otherwise receive a holiday gift and to the family under hardship who cannot afford to give them one.

Each year, tens of thousands of toys are donated by employees and volunteers of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to children and families in need during the holidays. They are given to children who attend schools adopted by their local sheriff’s stations and to children of members of the United Stated Armed Forces serving our Country overseas. Business members of the community have also joined in our efforts to brighten a youngster’s holiday by generously contributing countless toys in holidays past.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department invites you to join us in our holiday tradition of gift-giving to tens of thousands of children in need, truly A Tradition of Service.

If you would like to participate in our tradition, please bring a non-giftwrapped, new toy, which has a value of at least $10.00, and is appropriate for children between the ages of one to 16 years old. We welcome you to bring your thoughtful toys to any of our dozens
of patrol stations and leave them in the clearly-marked bins, located in the lobbies. Our patrol stations are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We ask that the donations be made prior to Saturday, December 15, 2012, so they may be organized and distributed in time, but we will gladly accept toys right up to Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24, 2012.

While receiving a toy will brighten the holiday of a needy child, it will also give you the gift of appreciation, knowing your donation made their season special!
