Thank you to everyone who donated toys, gift cards, clothes, trees, and more this holiday season. Over 322 gifts were distributed to children and local families!
We were able to adopt 58 families with a total of 113 children
Every Year the Youth Center partners with local businesses and community members through a toy drive. Toy Drive boxes are distributed and available for community members to conveniently donate new, unwrapped toys, gift cards, clothes, blankets, hygiene items, etc.
If you are interested in donating, you can find a toy drive box at the following locations:
The Youth Center, 10761 Los Alamitos Blvd
Ganahl Lumber, 10742 Los Alamitos Blvd
Bogarts Coffee House, 905 Ocean Ave, Seal Beach

If you are unable to come to any of the above locations, you can make a donation online through the below button.
We thank all community members and local businesses for their dedication to making a lasting impact on local families this holiday season.
Families sign up for assistance by completing an application and sharing their story of need. We review the family application to confirm the family has need. Last names and addresses are confidential. Family stories and the children’s wish list are shared with the supporter. Supporters go shopping. There is no dollar limit to what can be spent on gifts for the children or family. Gifts and gift cards must be labeled but unwrapped and are dropped off at the Youth Center between Dec 10 and 17 until 11 am. Families are notified to pick up their gifts on December 17th after 1 pm. Thank you cards are mailed to the supporters by our office along with a tax-deductible letter in January.
