Holiday donation programs offered

November 25, 2017

This holiday season, residents are invited to donate to local community programs, including "Toys for Tots" and the Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree Program.

The annual "Toys for Tots" program sponsored by the United States Marine Corps in cooperation with the City of Cerritos provides gifts to local underprivileged children. Clubs, families and individuals are encouraged to donate dolls, crafts, toy cars, building blocks, books and other items for infants and children. Possible teen items include notebooks, games, curling irons, blow dryers, books or CDs. New, unwrapped items are requested to help make sorting and delivery more efficient.

Toys for Tots donations can be dropped off through Friday, December 15 in the Toys for Tots bins at Cerritos City Hall, Cerritos Library, Heritage Park, Cerritos Senior Center at Pat Nixon Park, Liberty Park, Cerritos Park East, Cerritos Olympic Swim Center and Cerritos Sheriff's Station. Marines stationed in Seal Beach will deliver the toys to agencies serving local children. For more information, call (562) 865-8101.

The Salvation Army Angel Giving Tree Program brightens Christmas for needy children. To participate, pick out one or more tags by Friday, December 8 from the Angel Tree in the Cerritos Senior Center. Each tag (for infants through 12-year-olds) will list the child's age, gender, clothing size and toy request. New clothing and/or a new, unwrapped toy for the child, along with the original tag, should be brought to the Cerritos Senior Center on or before Friday, December 15.
