At The Marconi Automotive Museum, we pride ourselves on giving back and helping to build brighter futures for children who are less fortunate. Through net proceeds, from your wonderful help, we have given to many local children’s charities. But we would like to do more, and with September just about here, and the holidays a mere couple of months away, we are putting our pedal to the metal and launching two annual holiday drives.
This year, with our annual Food Drive, we have partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Through this partnership, we are asking for non-perishable canned and pre-packaged food. These donations will help alleviate hunger for families in need throughout our community. Please drop off your canned and pre-packed food to the museum office Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. Together let’s help make a difference to these families, and hopefully make their lives just a little bit brighter.
Our Toy Drive officially begins on November 26, but why not start now?! Giving back and helping others is about being proactive. Starting sooner creates more smiles and brightens more children’s lives. We are asking for toys that are new and unwrapped, for all age groups of kids. Please drop off toys to the museum office Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. We will hand deliver the toys, now and through Christmas, to local children’s charities.

If you are unable to bring food or a toy, that’s ok, you can always help our foundation by visiting our donation page and make a financial contribution. Thank you again for all your support and making the Marconi Foundation what it is today.
