The Magic of the Holidays
At Landsea Homes, giving back to the communities where we live and work is part of our culture and we take great pride in seeing our team do its part. This year we’re happy to support the Toys for Tots and Spark of Love annual toy drives.
We’re setting up toy drop-off locations at several Landsea communities and encourage anyone who would like to contribute to join us by donating new, unused toys or sports equipment at any of the locations listed below. We’re also donating $2,500 for our team to purchase and donate toys to this amazing cause.
Toys for Tots began in Los Angeles in 1947 with Major Bill Hendricks of the U.S. Marine Corps when his wife Diane wanted to give a homemade doll to a child in need at Christmas. She found there was no organization to facilitate this, so Major Hendricks created one, and the tradition of giving has continued ever since. In 1991, the Marine Toys for Tots Program was established, and for three decades the foundation has been fundraising, funding and supporting the Toys for Tots Program.
Spark of Love began around 1955 when Long Beach firefighter Murray Cohn started collecting toys for needy kids near his fire station. His fellow firefighters joined in, and his kind-hearted act of giving spread and continues to this day. For decades, these organizations have helped millions of less fortunate children share in the magic of the holidays, and we are proud to join them this year by helping to collect toys for kids in need.
