LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Thousands of impoverished inner city children will receive not just one, not just two but TWELVE NEW TOYS packed especially for them at Los Angeles' largest Christmas Toy Party at the Fred Jordan Mission today Saturday, December 19 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.  Skateboards, dolls, balls, stuffed animals and every kind of toy imaginable will be distributed by volunteer elves.  The Family Christmas Celebration will be held at the Fred Jordan Mission, at 445 Towne Avenue, on the corner of East 5th and Towne, in downtown Los Angeles. 

Poor and needy boys' and girls' faces will light up with joy and wonder when they see the mountain of new toys, and realize they can take home what may well be the first NEW toy they have ever received.  To thousands of families who do not have a real home, the Fred Jordan Mission is truly their home at Christmas.  Volunteer elves will be cooking warm cookies for everyone.

We are expecting over 10,000 children and families to attend.  The party will also include a Spectacular Christmas show featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse*singing Christmas Carols, courtesy of The Walt Disney Company.

Friends of Disney will greet the children, and escort them to the Toy Giveaway tables where each child will receive twelve toys, and assorted warm clothes.  In addition, each mother will receive a Christmas dinner food bag filled with fresh turkeys or chickens, fresh vegetables and fruit, and enough food to feed their family a special Christmas dinner.
