It's the 10th annual Muscle Beach Toy Drive, and it's easy to do your part. Several businesses throughout Venice will have drop-off bins to collect unwrapped gifts. Sometimes they'll even treat you to perks like discounts as a thanks for your generosity when you donate. (Toys should be around $20.)
You can also bring a toy to the annual Venice Sign Holiday Lighting party on December 2. There will be a collection booth set up. Or, wait until the two-day toy drive extravaganza on Muscle Beach, December 3 and 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Santa and his entourage of lovely lady elves are due to ride in on an LAPD open sleigh on Sunday at 1 p.m.
