Anaheim, California – The Alumni Program of the Anaheim Lighthouse, a drug and alcohol recovery facility in Anaheim, California, has collaborated with the City of Anaheim Community Services Department in holding a toy drive for kids this holiday season.

Jocel Bibera, alumni relations coordinator of the Lighthouse, shared that the alumni members have been collecting toys for children ages 0-17 since mid-November and they are very excited to distribute these to the children and spread some holiday cheer. All the toys collected will be distributed to families in Anaheim’s low-income neighborhoods on December 14, 2019.

“Through this toy drive, we want to encourage our alumni to become more involved in local community activities and recognize that being of service can be an important aspect in their recovery,” said Bibera.

The toy drive initiative is being held in partnership with the Neighborhood Services Section of the City of Anaheim Community Services Department.

According to Sandy Pantoja, Community Services Coordinator of the department, the mission of the Neighborhood Services Section is to facilitate a city-wide effort to improve the “livability” of Anaheim neighborhoods by enabling residents to assist themselves through the creation of partnerships between the city and other community-wide resources.

“We have a Neighborhood Improvement Team where each department in the city is committed to participating through a coordinated, inter-departmental approach. We work towards creating partnerships between stakeholders to work on issues of concern and identify actions to address them,” said Pantoja.
