Peter Foy Toy Drive v 2.1

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar



I wrote about Peter Foy's Toy Drive and said I wanted to donate at a local drop off box but since then I haven't heard back where there is one in Simi Valley.

Any clues?

First person to post an answer gets a toy donated in their blogger name.

Brian, I'd contact Foy's office directly. I'm sure they could give you some locations.

How about the Supervisor's office in the courthouse building?

Foy could use a clue drive.

Hi Katie!!!

Hello Brian,

Below is a commentary I sent out as a follow up for the Children's Group home parties. Since you were nice enough to bring attention to this event I thought you may want to know how it turned out.

Brian if you are still willing to buy a gift for a child who is less fortunate and you can't find the Foy Toy box the children in the group homes would be great recipients of anything you would like to donate. There are ten homes and 56 children.

Animated movies are always welcome and batteries always make good donations for toys and adaptive communication devices that require them.

I saw toy collection boxes at Brighton (Simi Valley Town Center) and at Today's Nail Spa (Target Shopping Center)if you want to donate a toy, but they were not for the Foy drive.

Holiday Spirit

The Holiday Spirit is alive and well in Simi Valley with an unprecedented outpouring of goodwill this season.
The Simi Valley Unified School District’s, Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) and the Rotary Club of Simi Sunset co-hosted parties for children with disabilities at ten local group homes. More than 100 volunteers volunteered for the event.
The Rotary Club’s of Simi Sunset & Sunrise and their youth sponsored Interact Club lived up to their motto of “Service above Self? by volunteering. The Amanda McPherson Foundation provided volunteers including local Scout Troops committed to “Doing good things in Amanda’s name.? Youth ministries from the Cornerstone Church added to the festivities.
The Young Chef’s Academy’s students offered their skills to the children and assisted them in constructing Gingerbread Houses donated by Trader’s Joes. SEAC, The Magical Kitchen, Del Taco and Village View Lighting contributed gifts, desserts and party favors.
The fun doesn’t stop there…you will see the children throughout the community this holiday season enjoying performances at the Iceoplex and the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center. These fun and exciting opportunities for the children were provided by the Rotary Clubs and the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center.
Sometimes with all the hectic schedules and commercialization that surrounds the Holiday’s it can seem so empty. Families welcomed the opportunity to help someone less fortunate. Folks expressed their caring for the children with a desire to make their lives richer. In doing so, they walked away with a greater gift to themselves, knowing they had made a difference in a child’s life.
The children were thrilled with their parties and more importantly with their newfound friends. There were lots of hugs and laughter shared by everyone.
I consider the help we received with the parties the best present I received for the Holidays. Thank you to all the volunteers and donors that brightened the lives of the children!
