Toy drive gets boost from local hospital
Verdugo Hills Hospital is joining with Union Rescue Mission’s Christmas Toy Drive Campaign by accepting toy donations during November. A donation bin will be placed in the hospital lobby, which is on the fourth floor. All donated items must be new and unwrapped.
All items donated during the Toy Drive will be arranged on shelves at the mission’s downtown Los Angeles Christmas Store.
Each year during the holidays, the mission converts its chapel into a department store and invites the homeless and working poor of Los Angeles to come in and shop for free gifts for their children. As part of the campaign, donation items are also recommended for the children’s parents.
For more information, call (818) 790-7100.
