Toys may be dropped off at Shaare Tefilla (La Brea) or Anshe Emes (Pico) during the day starting Monday, November 9th.  The deadline for toy drop off is Tuesday, December 1st.


Come join us at the Chanukah Wrap Event on December 6th at Tomchei Shabbos warehouse. Hours are 10:00 to 11:30 am at which time your donations will be wrapped and prepared in time for the Tomchei Shabbos Chanukah delivery.  


This event is fun for the entire family.  There will be a children's program including gift wrapping, music, arts 'n crafts and sufganiot.  This is a great educational program and a wonderful way to teach your kids to give!


If you cannot make it on December 6th, no worries. Monetary donations are welcomed and appreciated.  All donations are tax deductible and will go directly to Tomchei Shabbos to enhance their programs for the community. Hundreds of families benefit each week from Tomchei Shabbos.
