On Saturday, Dec. 16, the City of Compton hosted two events that united the community: the 3rd Annual Christmas Toy Giveaway and Community Bulk Day. The 3rd Annual Christmas Toy Giveaway transformed the newly named Eazy Street into a hub of holiday cheer, as families and children came together to receive delightful holiday gifts – from books to electronics and fun games, the city collected over 4,000 toys for children.

Simultaneously, the Community Bulk Day was a resounding success as residents participated in a community-wide cleanup event by bringing small and bulky items to designated drop-off locations.
“Compton’s residents have truly shown their dedication to the well-being of our community,” expressed Councilmember Andre Spicer.

“The Community Bulk Day was a powerful demonstration of what can be achieved when we all come together for a common goal.”
“Every little effort matters in our community,” said Todd Boquet, program coordinator for the Compton Initiative Bright Lights of Compton.

“The Community Bulk Day shows that when we work together for a common goal, we can make positive changes.”
