Food & Toy Donation = 10% Off at the Bing Surf Shop

December 07, 2014

Bing Surf ShopBing Surfboards Surf Shop is holding a Food & Toy drive for two local San Diego charities. When you bring a toy or food item to the Bing Surf Shop for donation you’ll receive 10% off one item in the store (surfboards unfortunately do not qualify). One item donated equals one item in the store 10% off. Bring multiple items to get 10% off multiple items in the store. ‘Tis the season to help those in need and we appreciate all those who participate. We’ll be collecting for the entire month of December.
The food donations will go to Got Your Back San Diego ( and the toys will go to Jewish Family Services ( Learn more about these two charities below.

GYBSD.ORG The GOT YOUR BACK SAN DIEGO project was developed to provide local school children with the nutritious food they need over the weekend. Every week throughout the school year, volunteers at our North County warehouse fill backpacks with enough food to feed a child breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two days. In addition to hunger relief, each backpack also contains a short lesson to help children learn about food and nutrition that will benefit them throughout their lifetime. On Fridays volunteers deliver the backpacks to schools where they’re needed. There, a designated school liaison distributes full backpacks to the children in need and collects empty backpacks from the week before. If you can’t get to our store but would like to help you can always make a donation on their website here:

Here’s what we need donated:
– Non-perishable items. Most of these children don’t have access to refrigerators or stoves.
– No Glass packaging please.
– Individual sized items are best so each backpack can get the appropriate amount of servings per child.
They Primarily need Breakfast items at this time:
– Cereal: 8 ounce single servings or 11 ounce box
– Instant Oatmeal: 3 ounce single servings, cup or packets
– Shelf-stable Milk: powder or liquid
Secondary need:
– Peanut butter 16oz or smaller
– Canned Soup or Chili: 15 to 20 ounce size
– Canned Spaghetti-O’s: 15 to 20 ounce size
– Canned Tuna or Chicken: 5 to 10 ounce size
