How does Sponsorship work?

For this years’ Holiday Toy Drive you have 2 options to sponsor a Family:

Option 1: You Shop for Gifts

  1. Select one or more Families and add them to your cart.
  2. Check out using the coupon code “IWILLSHOP”. This coupon code will zero out your cart total – but you still need to check out!. (Completing your order ‘claims’ your Family and removes them from the catalog).
  3. You’ll receive an email with ages, genders and gift preferences of your sponsored children so that you can buy Christmas gifts for them. We suggest spending around $25 per child.
  4. Wrap your gifts and place them in 1 bag per Family with the Family ID# attached. Be sure to indicate (by number) which gifts are for which child. Your receipt will indicate a number for each child.
  5. Deliver your gifts to a Drop-Off Location by December 11th. We’ll make sure they get them.

By using the “IWILLSHOP” coupon you are taking responsibility to provide gifts for your Family – they’re counting on you!

Drop your gifts off at one of 3 Drop-Off Locations:

Blue Oaks Church – 7139 Koll Center Pkwy, Pleasanton

Valley Community Church – 4455 Del Valle Pkwy, Pleasanton

Inklings – 530 Main St, Pleasanton

Option 2: We Shop for Gifts (You Donate)

  1. Don’t want to shop? No problem, we’ll do it for you. Add one more families to your cart and check out as usual, making a donation in in the process (DON’T use a coupon code).
  2. We’ll use your financial donation to buy age appropriate Christmas gifts for the children you sponsored.
  3. We’ll wrap the gifts and make sure they get them.

Either way you choose, you are helping make this a Merrier Christmas for local families in Pleasanton and Dublin.
