PTA holiday logo     Gift of GivingSamaritan House
The PTA is excited to support Samaritan House's holiday giving initiatives again this year, and we invite our WES community to join us. Due to Covid, the gift drives are still largely virtual, which makes participation so easy. We appreciate your generosity!
Gift Card Drive
We are excited to spread cheer this year at another safe drive-through distribution in mid-December. Gift cards will allow families to personalize shopping for each child in their household. Join us today and help us reach our goal of gifting 3,000 Target gift cards for children in need by making a contribution at house holiday. 
Virtual Toy Drive
We are thrilled to include toys as an addition to our drive-through distribution event in mid-December. Families with children under age 12 will be eligible to select a toy of choice at the event. Join us today and help us reach our goal of gifting 1,000 toys by contributing to our virtual drive at We are only streamlining toys virtually this year and are NOT accepting any in-person toy drop-offs at Pacific Blvd. Thank you for respecting our process as a virtual drive allows us to have toys delivered in one, bulk shipment, pre-sorted and ready to distribute with fewer volunteers needed to gather indoors to set up. We thank you for the support with our virtual drive!
It should be noted that the Hillsdale Mall Giving Tree is taking place on November 26th, 27th and 28th from 2-7pm and December 4th-5th from 2-7pm. Any toys dropped off at the Hillsdale Mall during those specific dates/times will benefit Samaritan House’s holiday program, but we will not be accepting in-person toy drop-offs anywhere else or otherwise.
