#GeeksCare: How You Can Help Toys for Tots with Nostalgic Books and Comics and We the Geeks of East LA

When Fanbase Press is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the Fanbase Press staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanbase Press will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.

For the latest edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, the Fanbase Press staff would like to share news about an upcoming toy drive at Nostalgic Books and Comics in San Gabriel, CA, to benefit Toys for Tots.  Taking place on Saturday, December 2, 2017, from 12 - 7 p.m., the event will be a joint venture between Nostalgic and We the Geeks of East LA during which attendees can donate an unwrapped, unopened toy and receive 20% off their purchase in the store. While donating, guests can also get their picture taken with fantastic cosplayers and participate in a variety of raffles and giveaways.

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve and collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year.  The toys are distributed as holiday gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.


We hope that you will stop by Nostalgic Books and Comics on December 2 for this worthy initiative!


If you have a volunteer opportunity or an important cause that could use the assistance of a few geeks, please email the details to barbra (at) fanbasepress (dot) com.
