YUCCA VALLEY - Tender Loving Cause's drop-off center opens Monday, Nov. 28, at 7245 Joshua Lane.

Donations of nonperishable food, toys and clothing will be accepted between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. seven days a week until Christmas.

"We're always looking for gifts for teenage boys and girls," Mara Cantelo, TLC founder, said. "We never have enough of those."

Cantelo added there is always a need for clean, stuffed animals. Puzzle books, toiletries and decks of cards are also needed.

Donations will be given away at the 28th annual TLC banquet Christmas Day at the community center.

TLC will collect canned food for local agencies with a Stuff a Bus food drive.

This year's goal is to collect 10 tons of food, "So gather up your canned goods," Cantelo said. "We want to stuff it to the gills. This is a perfect opportunity for organizations that are considering a canned goods drive to participate," Cantelo added.

Morongo Basin Transit Authority will let TLC use one of its buses. Dates are Dec. 1 and 2, and Dec. 5 through 9, with times and locations to be announced.

"We share items from the food drives, toy drives and other donations with local charities after our event is finished," Cantelo said.

All donations are used in the Basin.
