Eid Toy Drive

May 1 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 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’ 4th Annual Toy Drive.

Prior to Eid ul-Fitr ’21, our wonderful MCC Girl Scout troops will wrap and deliver the presents to 340 children of Muslim families in the East Bay who have recently received Zakat/Sadaqa and if possible, an additional 360 children of families who receive regular food rations from the MCC Pantry.

There are four ways to bring a smile to a child’s face this Eid:

  • Drop off toys/gift cards to MCC every Saturday (through May 1st) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Ship to MCC via our Amazon wish list at https://mcceastbay.org/wishlist
  • Ship toys/gift cards from any online retailer to: MCC Girl Scouts, 5724 W. Las Positas Blvd., #300, Pleasanton, CA 94588
  • Donate using at https://mcceastbay.org/drive-donations (secure link) or drop off cash/checks (made out to “Girl Scouts”) marked “Toy Drive” to the MCC office or during Saturday hours listed above.*  

For children 1 – 16 years of age, please consider donating new unwrapped toys and for children 16 – 18 years old please consider a gift card (which can be marked Toy Drive and left with the MCC office) or other options suitable for teens.

Please avoid:

  • Clothing
  • Dollar store or similar quality toys
  • Electronics or electronic accessories requiring children to have access to a particular device
  • 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.
