Holiday Toy Drive
December 13, 2011
Dear Neptune Families,
We are kicking off our annual Holiday Toy drive this week and are collecting new unwrapped toys for those less fortunate this holiday season. Please help make this a wonderful holiday season for all!!
WHEN: Starting Monday Dec. 5th and ending Thursday Dec. 22nd. On the 22nd at 4 pm Santa Rosa Firefighters from Ladder Truck 1 will come by Ridgeway Swim Center to pick up the toys and share a little holiday spirit with Neptune swimming. The fire truck will be open for kids to climb in and hang out in - WOW!!
WHERE: Ridgeway Pool Neptune Office - Toys For Kids barrel will be outside the door (or inside if its raining)
WHAT: We need new unwrapped toys for all ages of kids. Each year we are asked which toys do we need the most and though we accept any new unwrapped toy, the toys for older kids, tweens and teens, are the ones we run short on.
ABOUT TOYS FOR KIDS: Since the 1950's the Santa Rosa Fire Fighters have conducted a toy collection for needy children in our community. This unique spirit of Christmas, conducted in cooperation with the community, businesses and supporting agencies affords an opportunity to reach out and provide those less fortunate children in the Santa Rosa area with at least one new toy during the Holiday Season.
