OBTC Food and Toy Drive

From OBTC Website:

The Ocean Beach Town Council is collecting non-perishable food and new toys for our annual OB Food and Toy Drive, which helps over 90 local families and seniors in need during the holidays.

Together, we will provide these local families and seniors with a week’s worth of fresh groceries, a month’s worth of canned goods, and toys and gifts to bring holiday cheer and alleviate poverty.

We partner with community groups and volunteers to receive donations, package groceries, and new toys for those in need of help during the holidays.

If you would like to join the OB Food & Toy Drive volunteer effort, local community groups and volunteers will be sorting and wrapping donations December 15th- 18th from 5:00pm-8:00pm and we will deliver the donations on Saturday, December 19, from 9:00am-11:00am. The Toy and Food Drive is held at the Masonic Hall, 1711 Sunset Cliffs Blvd. Click here to see our calendar of volunteer opportunities. Please stop by and bring a donation and lend a hand!
