The Industrial BID was delighted to support the Los Angeles Police Department’s annual holiday toy giveaway, benefiting the children at Para Los Ninos.  One of the BID’s founding members, ABC Toys, along with Tom’s Toys, contributed significantly to this effort. 

Para Los Ninos conducted the giveaway as a Covid-safe drive through at their Learning Complex campus at 7th and Alameda, providing not only toys but also gift cards, food and school supplies for approximately 200 families.

Community Relations Officers and Senior Lead Officers from LAPD’s Central Division played a huge role in collecting and delivering the toys.   LAPD wishes to thank everyone who helped make this possible. 

Nearby at Inner City Arts, more holiday cheer came to more than 100 families and children, thanks to ICA’s partnership with the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Los Angeles.  Parents and their kids drove by for food and gifts provided by donors that included CHIPs for Kids, Shoe Palace, the Ella Fitzgerald Foundation, the Allen Lund Company and Navidad en el Barrio.

The Industrial BID is home to both Para Los Ninos and Inner City Arts, and we consider their students to be our most cherished “stakeholders.”
