Upcoming Events

We invite our caring community of donors, including corporations, service clubs, and foundations to support one or both of our annual events that build and strengthen our community.

Thriller Thursday 2020 – Register here!

Our signature Halloween fundraiser will be online this year…

Save the date for our “Thriller Thursday” on Thursday, October 29, 2020, from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

We’re planning a fun, engaging event that’s sure to thrill you!

Be one of the first 25 guests to log on at 5:00 pm, and your name will be in our raffle for a SPOOKTACULAR prize!

Meet our special guest…Senator Mike McGuire!

The need is great this year. All funds raised will be used to provide essential services to people in need in our community, including emergency rental assistance, emergency food, mental health care, and educational support for youth in need.

Holiday Share 2020

Our Holiday Share Toy Drive has been bringing the magic of the holidays to vulnerable children and families in North Marin for 48 years. This treasured program serves families facing financial hardship during the holiday season.

You can help by volunteering or supporting a family in need.


Volunteers are needed to help distribute gifts to families in need on December 19, and help us prepare for the event on December 18.

Please click here to sign up to volunteer at one of these days.


  • Purchase a toy: Learn about the 200 families we are serving this year, and click here to shop for a family in need.
  • Purchase a gift card: We’re collecting Target gift cards at $50 and $25 values for our teen clients.
  • Purchase a teddy bear: We expect to need 400 new teddy bears/stuffed animals. The children truly appreciate having a new, larger sized, stuffed animal to cuddle, particularly during times of stress.

Please drop off or ship all toys and stuffed animals to NMCS anytime between December 11 and December 17.

Monetary donations and gift cards can be sent to NMCS at 680 Wilson Ave, Novato, CA 94947, or donate here now.

This event is made possible because of the generous community of caring donors. If you are interested in being a sponsor for our December 2020 event, please contact donate@northmarincs.org.
