The Orange County Department of Social Services is preparing for our annual holiday program, The Toy Chest.  Toy Chest provides assistance to Orange County children 0-12 years of age, who are at or below 200% poverty.  We are in need of volunteers!  The program’s success is always contingent our volunteers. Please look at the volunteer options below:

  •  Individual volunteers must be at least 16 to volunteer without an adult, 
  • Groups of teens 16 to 18 must have an adult chaperone for every group of four. 
  • Adolescents 13 to 15 must be accompanied by an adult. 
  • All Toy Chest Escorts must be at least 18 years old.

 Volunteers are asked to:

  • Arrive 30 minutes before their shift for orientation and commit to at least 2 hours. 
  • Sign a confidentiality agreement prior to working at the Toy Chest


Toy Chest will operate at:
