Launched in 2012, Giving Tuesday was created in an attempt to counteract some of the consumption craze that surrounds the holidays and remind everyone of all of the things to be thankful for.
When Torrey Pines High School’s peer counseling group, PALs, learned about the children at Rady Children’s Hospital who are unable to go home for the holidays, they decided to launch a toy drive and bring joy to others. The school-wide drive began Dec. 1 and runs through Dec. 19. Torrey Pines High School is located at 3710 Del Mar Heights Rd, San Diego, CA 92130; (858) 755-0125. There are four different drop locations. 1: The Media Center at TPHS; 2: The Counseling office at TPHS; 3: Any history teacher’s class at TPHS; and 4: At the Farmers Market on Sundays in Rancho Santa Fe (Del Rayo Village Shopping Center) ).
If you or someone you know attends Torrey Pines High School, please donate new, unwrapped toys to the drive. If you do not know anyone attending Torrey Pines, it is not too late to start a toy drive at your own school or office.
