Fourth Annual Holiday Toy Drive



Gay Visalia has kicked off our fourth Annual Holiday Toy Drive benefiting the 1500 kids in foster care in Tulare County. Our drive runs through November 30th. ALL toys and monies raised stays 100% LOCAL in our county.

You can visit the Tulare County Health and Human Services Agencies web page to learn more about the program. You can also see a list of items requested by specific kids to help you in your buying. That web address is HERE. The areas they need the most help with are children under 3 (toys that light up or make sound) and kids 9-12 (especially boys). They suggested sporting equipment, skate boards, games, etc. for that age group. If you want to make it simple, donate cash or gift cards and we will do the shopping for you.

The Visalia Pride Lions Club is also a proud co-sponsor of this event. They help tremendously every year and I’m so very thankful for their contribution. If you can’t locate me, you can always find a Lion to give your donations to. You are welcomed to bring your donations to their meetings held the first and third Monday of each month at Mimi’s Café.

Gay Visalia is holding a fundraiser for this cause at Krazy J’s Nightclub in Tulare on Saturday, November 10th. The money we raise from the cover charge will 100% go to buying toys. You can also bring a toy that night to get in for free. We will have raffles, give aways and a special drag competition. You can learn more at our Facebook event HERE.

I know first hand how these kids feel and what they have gone through. ANY reason to smile can make such a huge difference in their lives. Please do what you can to help our efforts and to brighten a child’s life that may need it more than you know. Thank you all SO much for your support.
