    APLA’s 25th Annual Toy Box 2020 Toy Drive Goes Online with Contactless Drop-Off Options

    APLA’s 25th Annual Toy Box 2020 toy drive, the biggest LGBTQ supported toy drive in Los Angeles, will be held online with some contactless drop-off only options from December 1st to December 16th.

    APLA usually hosts a Toy Box holiday party in the city of West Hollywood. The concept in the past has been that an unwrapped toy is the price of admission to the holiday party. In return, guest would get a free cocktail, a free photo at a photo booth, and a chance to gather with friends around a Christmas tree to kick off the holiday season. The toys would then get delivered for free by APLA Health to So Cal families affected by HIV/AIDS who may not be able to afford toys on their own.

    However, due to the coronavirus pandemic this year, the toy drive has gone online to adhere with regional Stay at Home orders to keep the public safe. Children still want toys for Christmas, despite a pandemic. Toy purchases can be made from a Toy Box 2020 Wish List. Monetary donations are accepted to purchase additional toys. Toys can also be dropped off at drop-off locations in Los Angeles through December 16th.

    Drop-off locations include:

    The David Geffen Center
