Cross Campus and FastPay are hosting a “Toys 4 Tots, Alcohol 4 Adults” charity holiday party for Silicon Beach on Friday, December 14th from 7pm to 10pm. If socializing with your friends in the LA startup community isn’t enough of a reason to stop by, see below for the details from the US Marine Corp – Toys for Tots is now in its 56th year:
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
This is a great opportunity to get into the holiday spirit, reconnect with friends and toast the holiday season. There will be light snacks and drinks provided – but it’s up to you to bring the toys! The gifts should be unwrapped for ages up to 12. All contributions and sponsorship are to offset food/drink costs with excess being contributed to Toys 4 Tots. Early Bird Sponsors are for the first 6 sponsors.
