Volunteers to pack and deliver boxes and wrap gifts join in the magic of the OB Holidays during the “Season of Love !”

From OBTC:

OB Food & Toy Drive

The OB Food and Toy Drive – coordinated by the Ocean Beach Town Council – provides assistance to over 90 local families and seniors in need during the holidays.

The OBTC partners with community groups and volunteers to package a week’s worth of groceries, care packages and new gifts and toys for those in need of help during the holidays.

The Food & Toy Drive will take place the week of Dec. 11 – Dec. 16.  Volunteers are needed over the course of the week meeting to sort toys and food and get them all delivered. See below.
