Food Drive and Toys for Tots donations!

This holiday season, Advent is organizing a food drive and collecting donations for the Toys for Tots program. We welcome you to contribute. Please bring your donations to our office at 1600 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland anytime between now and December 15th (Monday through Friday between 9am - 5pm). For the food drive, we ask that you bring two canned or boxed food items (non perishable). For Toys for Tots we ask that you bring one new, unwrapped toy. Toys for Tots program asks that gift donations have a minimum $15 value. Once in our office, we invite you to sign up for online rent payment. It is easy and fast. You will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card for doing so! We thank you for participating in these worthwhile programs. Please remember that all donations will truly help others in need. We wish you and your loved ones a happy and safe Holiday season. The Advent Team!   more...
