Our Upcoming Events
Mayor's Community Toy Drive 2013
Help Us Bring A Smile To Child!
There are three ways you can help us meet our goals:
Donate $$$! While many toys are donated directly to the Toy Drive via barrels located throughout the city hall complex and every fire station, each year we run out of toys, especially for older kids, and have to purchase additional gifts from local toy stores. A tax-deductible monetary donation ensures that we can purchase the toys we need.
This year, Roonga is hosting our online drive for toys and gifts for the older age groups which we typically don't get enough gift items for. These toys will be fulfilled by local Oakland businesses including the Montclair Toy House and Give Something Back. Please click the link below to get started and identify the gift item you would like to provide. Please note that sales tax (9%) and a credit card processing fee (3%) will be added to the prices below.
Donate TOYS! When you’re out shopping for Jr. or little Missy why not pick up something extra for a child or teen in need. Just drop a new, unwrapped toy in one of the many collection bins that will be in place by December 1 or drop it off at the Oaklanders Assistance Center, Room 123 in City Hall. We graciously ask that you not donate toys of a violent nature (i.e. guns, daggers, etc.). The complete roster of drop off locations can be found below.
Drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any of the following locations during normal business hours.
