Toy Drive kicks-off season of giving

‘Tis the season to be giving, and Santa Claus is working overtime to meet the demands and needs of the world’s children.

The California Highway Patrol and Impact Thrift Store are asking for assistance in making the season bright for the children of Colusa County, and have once again teamed up to begin accepting donations for their annual toy drive.

Collection bins for the “Toys for Kids, Colusa County” Toy Drive have arrived at several local businesses.

“With the tremendous support from the community, last year we were able to provide a new toy to over 300 children in Colusa County,” said Impact Thrift Store Manager, Amy Gerard.

Gerard and Officer Shane Roach of the Williams Area CHP are placing nearly two dozen bins at select locations in Williams, Maxwell, Colusa, Grimes, and Arbuckle.

The California Highway Patrol has assisted Impact Thrift Store over the last several years by distributing collection bins as part of the department “CHiP’s for Kids” program.

With the holiday season upon us, the CHP and the Impact Store want to do their part to ensure all Colusa County children have a holiday season to remember.

The public is encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to any of the locations listed below until Friday, Dec. 16.
