City of Oakland Community Toy Drive

During the holidays, the City of Oakland collects and distributes toys for Oakland children. Last year, we were able to provide toys to over 8,000 children from low-income families. This includes over 16,000 dolls, trucks, books, board games, sports equipment, and gift certificates. NOTE: TOY DRIVE WILL BE HELD EARLIER THIS YEAR ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2019.
