If you can’t pay the rent, and don’t have enough food, the idea of getting toys for the kids is way down the list And the economic reality for many in the Skid Row community makes Christmas a sad time of year. But the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Event will provide real relief for families and children with generous donations of thousands of toys, coats for all guests and other gifts. Hundreds of volunteers from the entertainment industry, political leaders and others will bring the joy of the season to Skid Row.
Toyota will sponsor the event, with toys donated by JAKKS Pacific, Inc. and coats from One Warm Coat and Aérospostale.
More celebrities will be announced, and the event will take place on December 24 at the LA Mission, 303 E. 5th Street (Corner of Fifth and Wall St.).
