UPDATE: All toys and warm clothing have been given away, Merry Christmas! Read more!

Christmas commemorates the birthday of Someone who was born poor. Today, Christmas is about family, warmth and toys. (It was never intended as a show of wealth but compassion.)

FREE Toys And Warm Clothing For Christmas
Christmas is for ALL: no one should be cold and no child should be disappointed by Santa!

This year too, One Human Community will strive to spread a little joy to those in need in San Fernando Valley. There will be free warm clothing for teen girls and women as well as free toys for kids whose families’ are unable to afford any.

NOTE: the toys and the clothing are NOT new; but gently used. With that said, everything is clean, undamaged and ready for new owners.

If you need warm clothing (for women and teen girls, only!) or have a child who expects a toy for Xmas, RSVP for One Human Community’s 2015 FREE Toys And Warm Clothing For Christmas giveaway scheduled for Friday 12/11/15 from 11 am to 1 pm.

Come on down! Few people are poor by choice: WE KNOW THAT!!! Get free warm clothing and toys this December and Merry Christmas to ALL!

Cold weather – and the Holiday Season – is approaching. One Human Community is preparing (cleaning, washing and fixing) used toys and warm clothing which will be given free of charge to needy families in San Fernando Valley.
The work is progressing and, as in previous years, there will be quite some stuff to give!

Christmas Gift Bags Needed

Help One Human Community make Christmas warm for those in need, again!

Pretty dolls and other toys for young girls are ready. (We still have to install batteries where needed.) Among the clothing (for women and teenage girls) there will be warm tops (sweatshirts and sweaters); a warm robe, warm pajamas, etc… Things are looking good.

We have ONE serious problem: lack of Christmas bags! (Last year, we gave toys in new trash bags, but we learned since that those are insensitive: they evoke traumatic memories in those who passed through the foster care system.) We REALLY want to replace them with Christmas gift bags this year.

If you can give – or buy for us – some medium and a few large Christmas bags, you’d help us solve the problem! (Please remember: One Human Community isn’t a non-profit organization but a community movement so you won’t get a tax-deductible receipt.)

If you have any Christmas bags to give, please contact One Human Community!

During 2014 Christmas Season One Human Community went all out to lessen the burden of local families that struggle financially. This time we held:
FREE Christmas Toys For Girls From Struggling Families In San Fernando Valley, TWICE!
FREE Warm Clothing For Women In Need In San Fernando Valley, TWICE!

One Human Community’s Christmas 2014

One Human Community’s Christmas 2014

Most of the free toys weren’t new but restored by One Human Community’s team. The toys were clean, pretty, in working condition and with plenty of playtime left in them. (We also had a whole bunch of NEW toys to give!) Believe it or not, Santa himself made a brief appearance…. The toys will make many little girls – whose parents have fallen on hard times – happy this Christmas.

Some of the warm clothing made available by One Human Community to San Fernando women – and girls – in need was preowned, but mostly in good condition and clean. (Yes, there was some new warm clothing available too, including sleepwear.)

A LOT of financially struggling families showed up for One Human Community’s Christmas 2014 giveaways! A few remaining items were given directly to homeless mothers with children in tow on San Fernando Valley’s streets and in front of churches.

Avo Keshishyan and One Human Community’s team wish that they could have done more; that they were able to address the causes of poverty directly and provide permanent solutions. Still, we are all glad that even though we couldn’t achieve this goal this year, we have made Christmas 2014 a little brighter – and warmer – for families in need in our community.

FREE Toys for Christmas 

Well, we’ve done it, TWICE (on  Friday, December 13th 2013 at 11 am and on Friday 12/20/13 at 7 pm)!

FREE Toys For Christmas

FREE Toys For Christmas



The free toys – lovingly restored by Avo Keshishyan, the Founder of One Human Community – were clean, beautiful, in working order and made little girls whose parents have fallen on hard times happy this Christmas.



Many struggling San Fernando Valley’s families came to pick up free toys for Christmas. Even though not everything is well with the world and many still suffer in today’s economy, One Human Community has done its best to ensure that more children in our area will have a visit from Santa this Christmas.

Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to the families that visited with us and to every family out there!

Peace on Earth and Good Will to Men: Merry Christmas from One Human Community!

Last but not least, attention San Fernando Valley Parents, re-visit One Human Community’s Website AFTER the Holidays as well: Avo (the Founder) has more surprises coming!

To our FABULOUS volunteers: please accept Avo’s and Rev. Enrich’ heartfelt thanks! The holiday events went smoothly because of you. (Not to brag, but it seems that our feelings for volunteers were mutual.  That’s the message sent to us by one of them: “Your beautiful hearts will most definitely be appreciated. Hope, cheers and many blessings to your troops this holiday season.. My prayers go out to you all.”)


Many parents – and some children! – came to claim free toys. Avo,  the Founder of One Human Community:
