Here's your chance to join an Orange County, California business in support of providing holiday toys for families who are either at risk for being homeless or are needing a long-term place to stay.
There's a holiday toy drive underway to benefit families served through The Illumination Foundation, a nonprofit working to break the cycle of homelessness in Orange County. It's sponsored by RighTime Home Services, a provider of air conditioning, heating, and indoor air quality services in Southern California.
Here's How You can Donate Toys
Between Nov. 4 and Dec. 2, 2015, RighTime Home Services is inviting residents of Orange County to visit the RighTime offices located at 1451 Edinger Ave., Suite D, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to drop off toys for the Illumination Foundation’s upcoming Holiday Carnival.
As a thank you, RighTime is offering toy drive donors 20 percent off any heating, air conditioning or indoor air quality service.
To learn more about the toy drive, or RighTime Home Services’ award-winning heating, air conditioning and indoor air quality services, visit www.rightimeservices.com or call (714) 793-0739.
Here's How You can Volunteer
The Illumination Foundation’s Holiday Carnival is a private two-day event, which will be held Dec. 12 and 13, to provide holiday games, crafts, food, and other activities for homeless and at-risk families in Orange County’s low-income neighborhoods in Anaheim, Stanton and Santa Ana. RighTime will be donating the collected toys, as well as an additional $500 worth of toys to be given out at the event.
How Toys Empower Parents
The highlight of the Holiday Carnival is the parent-exclusive toy room. A large enclosed tent is filled with the donated new toys for young children and gift cards for teens. Adults in attendance have the opportunity to choose gifts for their children at no cost, while volunteer ‘elves’ wrap the gifts. All gift donations must be new and unwrapped. Toys of all costs and sizes are welcomed for young children, and gift cards are recommended for teens.
