For many struggling parents, providing gifts to their children is well beyond their reach. However, with the support from compassionate San Diegans like you, Home Start will be able to bring smiles and happiness to the faces of many children this holiday season.
UPDATE: All of our 2021 families have been adopted. Thanks to all of our amazing community partners who signed up to participate in this special program. Please support additional local children through participating in our 2021 Holiday Toy Drive (details below).
2021 Toy Drive
Each year, more than 150 Home Start families are invited to come and “shop” for just the right gifts for each child.
This year’s Toy Distribution is scheduled for Wednesday, 12/15.
Host a toy drive at work, school or with your neighbors, or simply purchase toys on your own or as a family. Gift Ideas by Age may help give you ideas on what types of items would be enjoyed by local children.
Please let us know you plan to collect and donate toys to help us in our planning: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please drop off toys to Home Start – see below.
Drop Off of Toys and Gifts / Dates and Times
Once you have your gifts and toys ready, we have scheduled drop-off times on Friday 12/3, Monday 12/6, and Tuesday 12/7 from 1pm – 6pm. We will have volunteers set-up in the Home Start headquarter parking lot who will be following all COVID-19 safety protocols.
Our office is located at: 5005 Texas Street, Ste. 203, San Diego, CA 92108
