ABOUT OC DRIVE
OC Drive collaborates with community non-profits to help serve our children and youth. We aim to provide fun opportunities for families to practice kindness together. Teaching kids about giving can be rewarding for both parents and the children. We know, because we are also parents.
Learning about giving and helping others gives children a feeling of empowerment, and making the act of giving a family activity is a great way to reinforce charitable values. It is especially important to teach our youth that they are part of a larger community and that we are all responsible for those around us. By giving the value of charity a central role in the family dynamic, we can encourage our children to grow up with a healthy sense of compassion and a strong charitable spirit.
Our events are a wonderful opportunity to encourage everyone in your household to celebrate the joy of generosity while learning about the strength of empathy and teaching our children about social responsibility.
We thank you for your support.
OC Drive | Our Children. Our Cause.
OC Drive is still seeking additional sponsors to elevate this year’s Winter Toy Drive and to establish a foundation for additional charitable “drives” throughout the year. This is a great opportunity for local businesses to connect with 3000+ potential customers in their community and help us put 3000 smiles on children in need.
