Make a Foster Child’s Holiday Bright

The holidays are coming and it’s time again for the biggest donation event of the year: the BOMA San Diego Gift Drive! As always, the drive will benefit more than 3,000 San Diego foster children of all ages through our long term partner, Promises2Kids.

What to Give

We are seeking gift cards and new, unwrapped toys and items for children up to 18 years old. Unfortunately, no plush toys can be accepted this year. The greatest need is for items for boys and girls age 11 – 18. Please consider donating something for one of these teens or preteens. See lists of the most requested items for this age group below:

BOMA San Diego’s Community Service Committee is collecting new, unwrapped toys at bin locations through December 7.

From December 8-21, items can be delivered directly to Promises2Kids with an appointment. Contact Promises2Kids for a drop-off appointment by emailing
