According to their website, “Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF) provides the highest quality services for children and adults who are challenged with developmental, learning and emotional disabilities – empowering them to reach their greatest potential. Each year, ECF serves more than 5,000 clients and their families at 15 program sites, in clients’ homes, and in community settings throughout Los Angeles County. ECF is the only organization of its kind in California to provide a lifespan of services for children and adults with developmental disabilities.”

ECF President and CEO Scott Bowling stated, “Most of the children we serve live in families who struggle to make ends meet. We want to make sure that every one of them receives at least one gift this holiday season, and that’s why we’re reaching out to the community to participate in our Toy Drive.”

Martin Feinberg, Realtor, notes that those interested in donating toys or hosting a toy drive with coworkers, friends or group members should visit for details.  Interested parties can also contact Lisa Kelly at lkelly@ecf.netfor more information.
