[ARCHIVED] Castro Family Toy Drive


Toy Drive

It’s time for the 13th annual Castro Family Toy Drive serving kids and siblings of the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at VCMC! 🙌🎄 Help us heal hearts where medicine can’t!

New, unwrapped toys and gift cards can be donated at the Ventura Police Headquarters, located at 1425 Dowell Drive. We have a large collection box in our lobby that we are looking to fill right up! Toys collected will be used to fill the toy box at the treatment center. The toys in the toy box are offered to patients (kids) receiving treatment (chemo, IV meds, transfusions, etc.) to help boost their morale and let know we’re rooting for them!

Join us in giving back to local kids who need a little extra lovin’ through the holiday season and beyond. 


If you'd like to adopt a family and purchase gifts for specific children. Each child has a $50.00 limit, so if you adopt a family with two children, please expect to spend $100.00 total. If interested in adopting a family in need and affected by cancer, please email Dan Castro at [email protected].
