Duarte Holiday Giving

Duarte’s Promise; The Alliance for Youth, the Neighborhood Watch Toy Drive Program, along with several local churches, businesses, schools and non-profits are teaming up to ensure a joyous 2019 holiday season for hundreds of Duarte area families.

The City provides two different, fun-filled and easy ways to give during the holidays. The Neighborhood Watch Toy Drive has helped families for over 35 years. Duarte Public Safety will again be partnering with the Duarte Community Services Council, the Duarte Emblem Club, and the Duarte Elks Club to brighten the lives of over 500 youth who will receive toys and food. All new and unwrapped toys can be delivered up until Saturday, December 14, 2019 to the Duarte Public Safety Office (1042 Huntington Drive). 

Annually, the “Holiday of Promise” project collects food, personal items and toy donations to help fill holiday baskets for Duarte families in need and the surrounding County area. All donations will be delivered to both the Duarte Community Services Council and the Foothill Unity Center for distribution to families. This year’s program will be from November 25 to December 14.
