The Pacific Palisades Rotary Club is hosting a holiday toy drive. All residents are invited to participate.
The toys will go to families at the Salvation Army Westwood Transitional Village, a nonprofit organization helping families transition from homelessness to independent living.
All donated toys should be new and unwrapped. They can be dropped off at 16320 Akron Street. The gate will be locked but you can reach over the fence and drop them in the plastic bins. The drop-off deadline is December 9 and 10.
The 79 children who are requesting toys and games range in age from babies to 17-year-olds. This might also be a great opportunity to support the town’s toy store Palisades Playthings (310-454-8648) or Paliskates (424-252-9993).
