Home News Chips for Kids Annual Toy Drive
With the holiday shopping season near, the California Highway Patrol Williams Area Office, the Colusa County Community Advocates for Parents and Children (CAPC), and the Family Resource Center in Colusa County are partnering to host the annual CHiPS for Kids Toy Drive, which provides toys and gifts to children of families in need.

“Not only are we looking for donations of various toys for ages toddler to nine, we are looking for donations of wrapping paper and wrapping assistants,” said CAPC program manager Carissa Bowers. “This year, we plan to setup a wrapping station for parents to wrap their gifts before they leave.”

Bowers said there were over 150 children who received gifts last year.

“We’re very thankful for the work CHP is doing in the community,” said Bowers.

Donation barrels will be set up around the county, and organizers are encouraging county residents to bring new, unwrapped toys to any of the following participating locations:

  • Arbuckle: the Library, Davies Chevron, Ace Hardware, Williams: Granzella’s Restaurant, Louis Cairo’s, Dollar General, and the Williams Area CHP Office.
  • Princeton: the Library.
  • Maxwell: the Library, the Maxwell Inn, and the Chevron

Forms are available in English and Spanish, and can also be found online at www.colusacapc.org. Application forms must be returned by Friday, Dec. 6, at 5 PM.
