The drugstore chain Walgreens, located on the busy Pacific Avenue corridor, at the corner of Willow Avenue, is partnering with the California Highway Patrol and 93.1 Jack FM to support “CHiPs for Kids.” The toy drive looks to bring toys to hospitalized and disadvantaged children for the holidays. It will take place on Monday, December 5th, from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, however all Walgreens are accepting toys everyday up until December 22nd. “This is a great opportunity to provide some toys and joy to some kids who are less fortunate. I am so happy to see a thriving business in the 6th District giving back”, said Councilman Dee Andrews.
Jack FM and the California Highway Patrol will be at the event encouraging the community to give. You can help by bringing a new unwrapped toy. For those that donate a new toy, Jack FM will be giving one opportunity drawing ticket for a chance to win a brand new truck. Also, Budget Truck Rental has graciously agreed to donate a truck for the event. It is our hope that we fill the truck that day.
