2019 Toy Drive

Start Date: 11/12/2019 8:00 AM PST

United States 

BOMA Oakland East Bay has been partnering with the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and Shelter Inc. for over 25 years. This toy drive will benefit women, children and young adults in Contra Costa County’s Shelter Inc., as well as patients being treated at Children’s Hospital. Our members' participation is integral to the success of the program. Member buildings assist by placing official toy barrels/boxes in their lobbies and encouraging their tenants to donate new, unwrapped toys during the collection period.

As usual, toys are always accepted. Alternatively, we'd like to share some other needed items for your consideration.

Gift Cards are given to families for various reasons, some travel long distances to visit their child being treated at our hospital, and some are needing food when discharged, and so many other needs.  We want to be able empower our families in these ways as a support for our patients.  Many of the grocery store cards will be very helpful for families during the Holidays, as well as monetary gift cards.
