Specific In-kind Drives
General Donation Drives: Year-round LCFS needs NEW toys, household items and clothing to give to children and families in our care. In order to meet these needs, many of our community partners choose to host donation drives for specific items.
Christmas Drive: This annual effort provides gifts for the foster children in our care. During the holiday season, you can help by hosting a toy collection, donating needed items and gift cards for older children, making a monetary contribution or volunteering to organize Christmas donations.
We ask that all donations are either delivered or mailed to LCFS. For more information on in-kind donations and details on locations and deliveries, please contact Leslie Lopez at Leslie_Lopez@lcfs.org or 708-488-5568.
