The Long Beach Unified School District’s Child Development Centers teamed with the Long Beach Day Nursery and Lakeshore Learning to provide 6,000 toys to children ages three to eight just before the winter break.
The Santa’s Workshop Toy giveaway was an impressive sight even as workers prepared for the event, according to Cindy Young, CDC director for the school district.
“My entire auditorium was full of empty boxes. Six thousand boxes is amazing,” Young said.
The toy giveaway took place at the CDC main offices at the former Monroe School site in Lakewood.
