Help make a child smile this holiday season!

Support BOMA Oakland East Bay’s Virtual Toy Drive benefiting the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and Shelter Inc, organizations we have supported for over 25 years. Due to COVID-19 visitor and volunteer restrictions, our ability to accept in-person donations remains limited so we are going virtual again this year. There are a few ways to get toys and money in the hands of children and families who need it more than ever.   Here are the ways we can help:

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital:
  1. Donate to their Project Cheer Virtual Toy Drive. Visit our Team page.
    • Donate to the BOMA OEB’s Holiday Squad team page
    • Join the Team – each building member can create their own team for their building and share the link with tenants and team members. Here you can track the results – a great alternative to seeing how full your toy bin is! Just be sure to select Join Team off the BOMA OEB’s Holiday Squad team page, link above.
  2. Shop their Amazon Wish list. It includes the items needed most for patient care and comfort. These items are hand-selected by our staff for easy delivery right to our hospitals.
The Project Cheer Virtual Toy Drive will stay open until mid-January 2021. Funds raised through this campaign will allow the hospital staff to purchase toys for kids who are in the hospital for the holidays. This gift drive includes patients and their siblings, so parents have one less worry in difficult times.

Shelter Inc:
SHELTER, Inc. believe severyone deserves a home for the holidays. This holiday season help SHELTER create a warm and memorable celebration for low-income families by adopting a family! They have over 500 families that need our help.
There are individuals, as well as small and large families in need, SHELTER is asking for 2 to 3 gifts per person from their Wishlist.  

Thank you for your participation and for bringing joy this holiday season!
