SIL's community is teaming up with the InnVision Shelter Network and the Opportunity Center of Palo Alto for our Annual Toy Drive. Each year, InnVision qualifies families who are on the free and reduced lunch program in the Palo Alto Unified School District; such qualification allows hundreds of families to have access to toys, board games, books and stuffed animals to give to their children at no cost during the Holidays.
If you are interested in contributing, we have barrels at SIL where new and unwrapped toys can be donated to low-income families here on the Peninsula. A list of preferred items can be found by clicking here.
The toy drive represents a great opportunity for all of us to give back to those in need this Holiday season. Our goal will be to raise 150 toys this year! The drive will end on Thursday, December 17, 2015 but SIL will conclude our efforts by participating in the distribution of toys to the community on Saturday, December 19, 2015 at the Opportunity Center in Palo Alto. Please feel free to contact Nick Rocha (SIL's Community Advisor) with any questions, or if you would like to participate in the distribution of toys.
