Little Italy Toy Drive


November 1, 2021 to December 13, 2021

Join the Little Italy Association and local businesses to Bring Joy by Giving A Toy! 

Over the past decade, the Little Italy Association has hosted the Little Italy Toy Drive to benefit the foster children of New Alternatives, Inc. and has brought in over 6,000 toys.  Local restaurants, retailers and the Little Italy Mercato will host drop-off boxes where San Diegans and guests can drop-off a new unwrapped toy. Toys are requested to be new, unwrapped and appropriate for a child between ages 1 and 18.

New Alternatives, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, is also accepts monetary donations to support the Little Italy Toy Drive.  If you are interested in making a monetary donation, please email Teresa Theriault.

The Little Italy Toy Drive has been such a success each year that the toys donated support New Alternatives throughout the entire year, not just during the holiday season!
