It’s that time of year so please give what you can, if you can and make the holidays a little merrier. The City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station are partnering to help give back to those in need this holiday season.
The 27th Annual West Hollywood Toy and Food Drive will be accepting donations until Friday, December 22, 2017 with the goal of providing nearly 1,000 families with meals and holiday gifts. Donations can be made online at www.weho.org/holidaydrive.
Toy and clothing collection bins will be available at West Hollywood City Hall, located at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard, and at the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, located at 780 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Monetary donations can be made at the cashier’s window at West Hollywood City Hall.
For the past 27 years, the generous contributions of local businesses and individuals have helped provide more than 7,300 local families with a holiday meal, as well as two toys for every child in the family.
The cost to help one family is $65; up to 10 families can be helped with $575. New unwrapped toys are also needed, as well as clothing, store coupons, discount cards, and gift cards to retailers such as Vons, Ralphs, or Target.
