CHLA Holiday Gift Drive

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 2.30.59 PM

New West is partnering with Children’s Hospital LA to donate gifts to families who are unable to create a lovely Christmas morning due to poverty and medical bills. No one knows what teens want better than teens. So, NWC students: what do you want for Christmas? Give that gift to a teen who won’t have a great Christmas… unless you donate.

Wish list for teens

  • Pajamas (separate pieces with button tops work best)
  • School supplies (binders, folders, backpacks, pencils, pens, etc)
  • Make-up (eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, lipgloss, etc)
  • Nail polish
  • Personal hygiene products
    • shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, tampons, pads, hair ties, etc
  • Clothing
    • jackets, sweaters, hoodies, sweats, jeans, jeggings, shirts, packaged underwear, socks, etc.
  • Shoes
  • Gift cards for Target, Walmart, Old Navy, etc.
  • Sports equipment (balls, etc)
  • Lotions and gel sets (think Lush and Bath and Body Works)
  • LA Sports Team swag (LA Kings, Lakers, Clippers, Sparks, LA Galaxy)
  • Board games
    • Life, Mancala, Jenga, playing cards, etc
  • Journals/notebooks
  • Jewelry

Remember this list is a suggestion!!! Teens know what teens what. Parents: ask your teens what they want for Christmas and use it as a guideline for shopping. Or better yet, take your teens gift shopping with you!

Need help on where to shop? Think… H&M, Forever 21, Brandy Melville, Topshop, Hollister, Zara, Nordstrom, Gap, Free People, Urban Outfitters, Lululemon, Nike, North Face, Pacsun, Hot Topic, Buffalo Exchange, etc.

Your gifts will be greatly appreciated!!!
