Toy Give-Away

11th Annual Toy Giveaway

This year will be our 11th annual toy give-away. After sav­ing the largest Santa Claus in the world, and build­ing a small theme park around him, we started giv­ing away toys to under­priv­i­leged kids.  This annual event, tak­ing place one week before Christ­mas, now presents gifts to more than one thou­sand kids who might oth­er­wise not receive any­thing for Christ­mas.   Over the years, we have given away tens of thou­sands of toys and gifts. We now part­ner with the Oxnard Police Dept.,Ventura County Sher­iffs Dept., Cal­i­for­nia High­way Patrol, Oxnard Fire Dept. and Ven­tura County Fire Dept. These offi­cers are on the front line, rain or shine, hand­ing out the toys, and build­ing strong rela­tion­ships with our youth.

Our Kids

Each year,  the entire street in front of the Santa is closed to allow the kids to line up and cel­e­brate our spe­cial gift giv­ing bonanza. Hand­ing out these gifts is a smil­ing peace offi­cer from city or county ranks, as well as our Fire­fight­ers.  Addi­tion­ally, each child gets a raf­fle ticket.  After all the gifts are given, we raf­fle off sev­eral grand prizes, such as bikes, cam­eras, Wii games etc. to make this even more of a spe­cial day for our kids.
