Annual Toy & Hoodie Drive for Verde Elementary School 
Kindness Still Needed! 
The 2014 Verde Elementary School Toy & Hoodie Drive is still on and we still need donations!

Verde Elementary School is located in the heart of North Richmond and nearly all its families are very low income. 

This year we're giving every student a new toy and a new hoodie printed with the words "Work Hard! Get Smart! Be Nice!."  The hoodies will not only provide warmth,  but become part of the school uniform.

To make this happen, we need to raise more than $7500 for the 320 hoodies and toys. Donations of new age-appropriate toys (K - 6th Grade), and especially, cash or check donations are much appreciated and tax deductible. All donations must be received by Friday, December 12th.   

Checks should be made payable to the non-profit "Neighborhood House of North Richmond" and note "2014 Verde Toy Drive" on the check.  Toys must be unwrapped.
Donations and checks can be dropped off or mailed to my office:
11780 San Pablo Avenue, Suite D
El Cerrito, CA 94530

(Just north of the El Cerrito Del Norte BART Station)

 Students will receive the gifts at a special holiday party.
If you have questions, please contact James Lyons in my office (510-231-8692).
This is one of my most favorite events of the year!  Whatever support you can provide will go a long ways to helping our North Richmond children and families.
