La Cañada Flintridge Calif. –  Allen Lund Company (ALC) is hosting a Christmas in July Toy Drive from July 5-31 in support of Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdPLA) in Downtown, Los Angeles. ALC invites the La Cañada Flintridge community to donate toys to provide a Christmas for the severely under served families of Los Angeles.

The Christmas in July Toy Drive, sponsored by SVdPLA, will benefit a multitude of families. To date only 200 toys have been donated to provide 2,000 recipients with gifts. In December, families will receive a donated food basket as well as toys and shoes for the children.

“This is our fourth year working with SVdPLA and every year we’ve not only accomplished our goals of providing meals and toys for families, but continued to increase participation from donors,” said Nora Trueblood, Director of Marketing at Allen Lund Company. “With the help of the community, we can give families the gift of Christmas this holiday season.”

We are in need of new and unwrapped toys for children between the ages of 3-17. Sports equipment is also recommended, especially for older children.
