Toys For Tots
At the request of the Marine Corps, for 17 years, LOV's volunteers have distributed collection barrels, picked up and sorted toys and bagged them for non profit service agency's children in Fremont, Newark and Union City. The need is for 10,170 toys for children from newborn to teens.
LOV has put out a total of 110 collection barrels throughout the Tri-Cities. In Union City you can bring a new unwrapped to any fire station, as well as Texas Roadhouse and Cesar Chavez Middle School. There are 15 locations in Newark and 37 locations in Fremont. To find a location near you, call LOV at 510-793-5683 and ask for Harold.
You can also bring in your toys to the LOV Community Service Center at 36120 Ruschin Dr., Newark in the former Ruschin School.
