Fruitvale BART Transit Village, 3301 E.12th Street

9th Annual Three Wise Men Toy Giveaway.

Traditionally, January 6 of every year marks the biblical adoration of baby Jesus by the three kings. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we will provide over 3000 toys to makes the holidays joyful for the Oakland children whose families can’t afford gifts. Attention parents in an effort to increase the importance of public safety awareness, we will be asking children to bring a war toy in exchange for an educational toy.

I am a survivor of random gun violence (see video below). I, Luis Ortega was shot point blank on my throat. After my experience, it became my mission to promote safety and gun violence awareness by providing educational toys to Oakland children whose families can’t afford gifts.

WE WILL SERVE ROSCA DE REYES WITH HOT CHOCOLATE FOR EVERYONE WHO ATTEND.

See video!
