“With the tremendous support from the community, last year we were able to provide a new toy to over 1,000 children in Colusa County,” said Impact Thrift Store Manager, Amy Gerard.
Both Gerard and Officer Kristin Murphy of the Williams Area CHP placed bins at 21 locations in Williams, Maxwell, Colusa, and Arbuckle.
“The Impact Colusa County is a great organization, and the CHP is more than happy to assist with their program,” said Murphy.
The California Highway Patrol has assisted Impact Thrift Store over the last several years by distributing collection bins as part of the departments ‘CHiP’s for Kids’ program.
With the holiday season upon us, the CHP and the Impact Store want to do its part to ensure all Colusa County children have a holiday season to remember.
