Help at the Toy Loan program

Hi all,

One of our members, Marisela, is going to host an event in September to help the brand new Toy Loan program organized and managed by Atheists United.

What is the Toy Loan program?  The Toy Loan program is like a lending library for toys. Children visit a local Toy Loan center and borrow 1 toy for a week. The program helps families save money by borrowing toys instead of buying them. It also builds good character in children by encouraging honesty, patience, courtesy, promptness, cleanliness, cooperation and responsibility. It does this by rewarding children with special points when they follow the rules. After several weeks of accumulating points, a child earns a brand new toy to keep.  See more info at

Meetup Date:  Saturday, September 14

Location:   Center for Inquiry (The Atheist United general meeting location)

   4773 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90027

The hours:  8:30am to 1130am


The type of help needed:

·  Canvassing (walking to local businesses in the area to leave flyers and speaking to families walking in the streets nearby to encourage them to come during the open hours) Spanish speakers are strongly encouraged to come.

·  Manning a small outside table in front of the Toy Loan center to explain the Toy Loan program to passersby and/or showing them inside to see how the program works.

·  Setup and breakdown of toy display
