The Toy Drive first began more than 10 years ago when 5 high school boys decided to organize a grassroots toy drive for low-income families. They each donated money, went shopping, and delivered the presents to the families.
The program has since grown and is now an annual event. We partner with parents of students at Rio Americano and Jesuit High School. In 2014, we provided presents to 113 families and 316 children!
The 2017 Toy Drive application process has now begun! The Hand in Hand Toy Drive will be held Sunday, Dec 3 at NeighborWorks Sacramento 2411 Alhambra Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95817
