Victor Valley Holiday Meal and Toy Assistance

VICTOR VALLEY-(VVNG.com):  Families run into disasters, illness and other very real situations that make Christmas gift giving something that even if planned, becomes impossible. Some save every month all year and a sudden job loss or illness makes it necessary to divert the funds to a more immediate need. That is why organizations take the time to organize events, to help these families that may have been hit by recent difficult situations. Victor Valley News is providing the list for our community members that can use assistance this year.

Toys 4 Tots

Signs ups open now

We do our very best to make sure each child between the ages of newborn through 14 years receives two toys, one large and one small. We ask you to submit a request to only one distribution center. Sorting requests made to multiple centers costs the program valuable time that could otherwise be spent on collecting and distributing toys.
