We need toys!

Last year, It’s All About the Kids® transformed into Santa’s Workshop San Diego and the Super Elves [volunteers who collect toys] collected and distributed over 2,200 toys. This is our 13th year making kids smile!

This year, we have to exceed that goal! We are helping two more charities this year too! So, we need your help!

  1. Have a toy drive at your holiday party or place of work!

  2. Collect toys within your family or with friends!

  3. Volunteer to help us make Santa’s Workshop San Diego happen!

We like to take lots of photos of donors and toys and post then on our social media and website! We are so grateful to everyone who helps us make a difference this year!

Please contact us at events at We have an easy step by step process that includes artwork for posters, a playpen and more!

This year will are collecting non violent toys for:

  • Christie’s Place [all ages, gift cards for teens]

  • Eunime [all ages]

  • Serra Mesa Food Pantry [all ages, gift cards for teens]

  • Storefront [gift cards for teens]

  • Family Justice Center [all ages]
