If you are planning on donating toys for Duke's toy store and are wondering where to do it please see the very important donation information Below!
 

 We have a few ways you can donate toys:

 

ONGOING COMMUNITY TOY DROP OFF LOCATION:

The owners of Beach Cities Properties have graciously allowed us to use their main office as a toy drop off location from now through December 12th during the hours of 9:00am -- 5:00pm Monday through Friday. The office is located at 4195 Viking Way Suite B Long Beach Ca 90808. The nearest major intersection is the corner of Carson and Bellflower Blvd. You will see the "Real Estate" sign as well as "Beach Cities Properties" signs on the front. Bring your unwrapped toy and drop them off at anytime the office is open.

 

DANCE FUNDRAISER AND TOY DONATION EVENT:

The owners of "The Clubhouse" have opened their doors for toys and dancing and welcomed everyone at 733 Dunn Way, Placentia CA 92870 on Friday December 7th at 7:30 for the beginners lesson and open dancing starting at 8pm.

Join us for a fun night of swing dancing to the tunes of DJ Jumping Jack Smith to raise toys and money for Duke's toy store serving the poverty stricken and homeless children in our community. This is going to be a night of dancing and fun in a safe friendly environment. All are welcome to join in the swingin fun. 

Don't know how to swing dance? Not a problem, in fact, bring your friends who don't know how to as well. We will be offering a beginner class at the beginning of the night at 7:30 for those who have never stepped foo
t on a dance floor or for those who might be a little rusty. 

The cost? Simple, bring in a unopened toy worth $10 or more or bring $10. Every toy received will go straight to the shelf of "Dukes Toy Store" and every dollar brought in will go towards this worthy cause. 

Hope to see you there!

Please contact me if you have any questions.

      Guide a family through the store as they get inspired to select their gifts for their kids

      Gift-wrap the selected gifts and package them for delivery.

Make a difference in a families life with the gift of your time!

  

Deliver the gifts and enjoy time with the families:

This is one of the most important things that we do. 

 

After the fun of collecting, guiding, and wrapping with the parents, the volunteers will personally deliver the gifts to the families so that we can pray for, love on, and get to know them. Even if the kids are living in a homeless situation with the parents, it is important that we can meet them and spend time. We want the families to know that this is not just a blind "give-away," but we actually care about them and want to see them joyful and in a stable lifestyle.

 

Saturday, December 22nd 9:00am to 5:00pm with two shifts available to work

9:00am -- 1:00pm first delivery shift
1:00pm--5:00pm first delivery shift

 

All of our volunteer opportunities are open for all ages. For the deliveries we will never send out a volunteer alone but instead we set up teams of people to go together to deliver the gifts. If a child comes to volunteer with their parent depending on the childs age we will be sure to set up the teams as well as the areas that we send the teams to as age appropriate for the volunteers. When regestering as a volunteer please let us know if you can speak spanish, if you are willing to be a driver and have a truck to transport toys in or if you have any other special cercumstances we should know when putting together the teams.  

  

 If you are interested in coming out to this event please pre-register with genesis@helpingallnations.com so that we know how many volunteers we can expect. Please include the name, age, and which date and which shift you are available to work for each volunteer. If you can help with more than one shift or day, or come in a different time block that is fine as well. 

 

This event is purely run on donations and volunteers. We are so thankful for your support for H.A.N.D.S. On International and the people we serve!

 

Merry Christmas!
