Blue Oaks Church /JKPC
  Christmas Toy Drive  

JKPC is partnering again with Blue Oaks Church in Pleasanton, as well as other local churches and school districts by sponsoring unhoused families in Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore with a special Toy Drive!  The Christmas Toy Drive is about neighbors helping neighbors and spreading Christmas Joy! 
Sponsorship starts today, 11/23. 


There are three ways to Sponsor a Family:

1.  Visit  and Select a Family

Then view their child’s/childrens’ wish list. Buy and wrap the gift(s) for the family. Deliver wrapped gifts to JKPC by 12/15 or Blue Oaks Church by 12/16.
($50 is the recommended amount to spend on each child's gift.  You can choose a family with one, two, three or more kids to sponsor.)


2. Or you can make an online donation at:
You can still Select your Family, donate the $50 per child and the Blue Oaks Church volunteer shoppers will get to work. 


3. Or you can make a donation of any amount directly to JKPC. 
 Make your check out to JKPC and write "Toy Drive" in the memo of the check, or you can use our JKPC Venmo (via Miss Nancy).     We will then Select a Family and have our JKPC team take care of the Wish List shopping and gift wrapping! $50 will cover one child's wish list request, but any amount is appreciated.  We will make sure that all kids receive a $50 gift.

There are also volunteer opportunities to help Blue Oaks Church with shopping/wrapping, as well as handing out gifts.  You can sign-up to volunteer on Blue Oak's website.

Please contact Nancy Polcyn with questions.   
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!   Blessings, Nancy Polcyn
