Long Beach Independent held our 4th annual “Secret Santa’s Toy Drive” at Di Piazza’s in Long Beach last year on December 13th. Every year we hold a toy drive featuring great music and with the help of local bands Taylor Collins, The Barrelhousers, Boa Constrictors, and Eddie Booze & Klepto K we raised over 120 toys. Unlike many “charity” shows around this time of the year we follow your donations all the way to the Long Beach based charity Christian Outreach in Action and document the direct impact of your donations.
