Toy Drive serves more than 300 Children

[slideshow_deploy id=’68497′]

Christmas will be extra special for 326 needy children in Colusa County thanks to the annual toy drive hosted by Impact Life in partnership with CHiPs for Kids.

This year, over 380 toys were donated and distributed to 139 families throughout Colusa County.

Collected at several dozen locations countywide, many toy bins were overflowing.

Amy Gerrard, who is one of the driving forces behind the toy drive said that it was another successful year.

Colusa County Supervisor, Denise Carter was ecstatic with the toy turnout at the Courthouse collection bin.

“This is a fabulous day,” said Carter, “It is so wonderful for our community to give those who need a little help, and in the end we get to help make a child’s Christmas special.”

As families one-by-one turned in their tickets and selected toys for their children. Once selections were made a group of volunteers helped wrap the presents making the gift extra special.

“Me and my husband trade off each year,” said Jackie Sanchez, “We volunteer to help out with our son in Boy Scouts, but it becomes an annual tradition. I love it!”

This year the distribution was held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Oak Street in Colusa.

“We would like to thank the Knights of Columbus for allowing us to use their facility,” said Gerrard, “it worked out well for us.”
