Toy Drive a Success

During the recent Christmas Season, the California Highway Patrol and Impact Life Colusa County Thrift Store collaborated and hosted a toy drive for the children of Colusa County. 

Bins were placed at 23 locations throughout the county, and response was overwhelming. 

‚ÄúThe toy bins at Arbuckle Elementary and Grimes Elementary were over stuffed with toys,‚ÄĚ said Impact Life Coordinator Amy Gerard, ‚Äúit was great to see the support.‚ÄĚ

The response from the community was overwhelming, and once again Impact Thrift Store and the California Highway Patrol were happy to be able to serve its community. 

On Saturday, December 21st, the children were invited to Birchfield Elementary School in Colusa to pick up their toys. Recipients were selected through an application process earlier. 

293 kids received toys that day, with each child receiving up to three toys each. 

‚ÄúThis is the first year each child could get three toys‚ÄĚ said Gerard.¬†

Over 50 community volunteers took part in helping the wrap the presents for their children. Santa made an appearance to ensure all the toys had proper batteries. 

‚ÄúThis is a wonderful opportunity for the community,‚ÄĚ said Supervisor Denise Carter, ‚Äúit‚Äôs great seeing our community help one another.‚Ä̬†
