Donate Much Needed Gifts for the Clients of Imagine LA

Imagine LA's Winter Wonderland event for families in the Imagine LA program, as well as their mentors, to celebrate the winter holidays. All of their families have recently exited homelessness, and they need extra community and financial support around the holiday season. It's an opportunity for the parents to get gifts and holiday supplies for their family, while the children play. Santa comes, and they have a crafts and games area for the children. They will be constructing a "shop" for parents to pick out toys for their children for the holidays. They will also be giving families the opportunity to get Christmas trees and ornaments, and are accepting financial donations for that purpose. We have two websites, one for financial donations, and then an Amazon wishlist of in-kind donations, which will be populated this week. People can buy the in-kinds off Amazon, or work with Imagine LA directly to bring it to our offices for the event. We accept financial contributions throughout the holiday season.
