Toys For Poor Kids, Books For Preschoolers

Topanga Cub Scouts Pack 24 logo courtesy of their website.
During this holiday season, the Topanga Cub Scouts Pack 24 is welcoming donations of new, unwrapped toys and gifts that would go toward local children and teens who are in the process of transitioning out of homelessness and poverty.

In helping the North Hollywood-based L.A. Family Housing organization toward this end, Pack 24 is asking for gifts geared toward kids of all ages. But there is a more pressing need for teen-oriented gifts such as iTunes gift cards, cosmetics, accessories, AXE body spray products, etc.

Starting after Thanksgiving and up until December 11, toys and gifts can be left in boxes at two Topanga Canyon locations: Froggy's Topanga Fish Market Restaurant at 1105 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd. or at the Animal Clinic of Topanga at 115 S. Topanga Canyon Blvd. #B. Or a pickup of gifts can be arranged by visiting the scouts' website at

On November 17, the American Community Survey, a U.S. Census Bureau report, was released indicating that in 2010 there were more than two million children in California living in poverty. This number reflects an almost 200,000 hike from 2009. Donated gifts would go toward children who may not always have their holidays brightened by something to call their own.

Also this holiday season, anyone who spends the holidays clearing out the attic and reflecting on memories past via old books can donate those geared toward children between 2 and 4 years of age to the Wonderkids Daycare/Preschool in Kirkwood Bowl, which is west of Laurel Canyon. Book donations would go toward creating a library for the new school. Pickups can be arranged by sending an email to
