HOPE for the Holidays
The 4th annual HOPE for the Holidays toy drive is upon us!
HOPE for the Holidays is an annual toy drive for Riverside County foster youth. We coordinate with Regional Managers and Social Workers from Riverside County Department of Social Services (DPSS) to identify foster youth who could benefit from these gifts and fulfill them by various methods.
From community donations at multiple donation sites throughout Riverside County to funds from district and city agencies, we aim to make sure all foster youth in Riverside County have a gift to open.
Last year we raised a total of $39,109.68 with included Community Improvement Designation (CID) funds from Districts 1, 2, 3, and 5 as well as donations from My Stuff Bags Foundation, Blythe Energy, Christopher Clubhouse and items/toys provided by generous individuals throughout Riverside County. This translated into 1,062 holiday gifts for Riverside County foster youth!
