Toys for Kids A program of The Imperial Court de San Diego

Diving head first into its 35th year, The Imperial Court de San Diego “Toys for Kids” Holiday drive encourages the community to donate an unwrapped toy or a monetary donation, which will benefit families across San Diego County and Tijuana. In a continued effort to support diverse family units, last year’s holiday drive successfully provided 42 families with much needed food and gifts for the holiday season.

“Since 1974, The Imperial Court de San Diego held the Toys for Kids drive in an effort to provide gifts to local children who fall below the poverty line” says City Commissioner, Nicole Murray Ramirez,

About Toys for Kids: The Imperial Court’s annual Toys for Kids drive, the oldest holiday toy drive of the LGBT community, was established in 1974 after the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation refused to accept donations from the homosexual community. From the time of its inception, the Toys for Kids program has brought holiday cheer to thousands of children throughout San Diego County and Mexico.

This year The Imperial Court de San Diego is distributing toys to a minimum of 6 organizations including

1)Family Matters
2)Barrio Station
3)Acosida in Tijuana
4)Escondido Health Center
5)Ramona Health Services
6)Christie's Place
