It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year here in Ocean Beach, and the OB Town Council’s Annual Food & Toy Drive needs volunteers to help sort and pack the many toy and food donations – and then needs drivers to pick-up and deliver the boxes of food and gifts to families around OB.

Usually more than 80 families are served by this program each year. This is truly a heart-warming event that captures the magic of the holiday season!

Volunteers will be meeting at the Masonic Center, 1711 Sunset Cliffs Blvd. for the work parties and also for Delivery Day, Saturday.

Starting on December 10, there will be daily work parties Monday through Thursday, and then Saturday is Delivery Day (nothing on Friday).

Go to links below and sign up for one or all:

Day 1: Monday, December 10, 2018 at 5 PM – 9 PM

Day 2: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 5 PM – 9 PM

Day 3 : Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 5 PM – 9 PM
