District Toy Drives

Schools and Libraries

December 20, 2013



Members of the Long Beach Classroom Teachers Association donated a record number of toys this year to make the holiday season brighter for Long Beach students attending after-school programs at Project Excellence, Circulo de la Hispanidad and the MLK Center. The toy drive was organized by Lynda D'Alessio, Barbara Hirsch and Stephanie Meyer.

At Long Beach High School, members of the Anti-Bully Club and African American Club joined together to collect gently used toys to donate to the MLK Center in Long Beach. After a week of collecting, both clubs sorted the toys, cleaned them and boxed them for delivery. The toys will help parents provide their children with some holiday fun without the stress of the cost.
