Eid Toy Drive for Zakat-Eligible Families
March 10 @ 8:00 am – April 14 @ 5:00 pm
Please help us spread cheer to families in need during this blessed time by donating new unwrapped gifts (in person or online) to the MCC Girl Scouts’ 6th Annual Toy Drive.
We are collecting over 650 toys for local zakat-eligible families, including many refugee families that have been assisted by MCC East Bay.
There are four ways to bring a smile to a child’s face this Eid:
– Ship to MCC via our Amazon wish list at https://mcceastbay.org/
– Donate using Cheddar Up (secure link) or drop off cash/checks (made out to “Girl Scouts”) marked “Toy Drive” or gift cards to the MCC office.* These can be handed to Aminah on Fridays (9 am – 4 pm)
– Drop off toys to MCC (bins are located in the lobby) (MCC doors are open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily)
– Ship toys/gift cards from any online retailer to:
MCC Girl Scouts
5724 W. Las Positas Blvd., #300
Pleasanton, CA 94588
Electronics or electronic accessories requiring children to have access to a particular device
Previously used items
Dollar store or similar quality toys
Toys of violent nature (guns, swords etc.)
Toys that may be construed as having an inappropriate nature
Keep in mind we are hoping to share gifts that these children may not typically have access to.
If you donate a toy that needs batteries, please attach a set to the toy.
*MCC Girl Scouts will use funds collected to purchase toys or wrapping supplies for the drive. Any extra funds received will be used for school supplies for the same group of children for the next school year.
