Bring Holiday Joy to Veterans and their Families at U.S.VETS (Inglewood)

Every year U.S.VETS (Inglewood) hosts a festive holiday celebration for veterans and their families to come together. They are seeking donations of new toys and gifts for kids of all ages ranging from 5 to 17 years old. As many of their veterans are in recovery and working on themselves, they would otherwise be unable to provide their families with gifts. Therefore, your donations will directly support a veteran family in helping provide festive cheer and solace to veterans. Gifts can be pre-wrapped but they ask you write the item and intended age group on a sticky note for them to reference. They will be collecting toys and small gifts starting December 1st to December 17th. The drop off location will be at U.S.VETS — Inglewood located at 740 Isis Ave. Inglewood, CA 90301. Please look for Axel Diaz, he can be contacted at (310) 912-4472. For more information and to sign up please email: Axel Diaz at adiaz@usvets.org.
