I am hoping the mods will allow this thread because we are doing this for charity and is not a for profit event.

Once again Riverside Vw (Part of the Riverside Metro Auto Group) has teamed up with 99.1 KGGI and the California Highway Patrol to collect toys for the Toys For Tots program.

The Toys For Tots program was started by the United States Marine Corps Reserve in 1947 to donate all collected toys to give to all little boys and girls who were less fortunate.

We are proud and honored to partner with the California Highway Patrol to be a local drop off location for any donations.

Riverside Metro Auto Group is located on the corner of Adams St and Indiana Ave just one block south of the 91 Freeway. Our address is 8330 Indiana Ave, Riverside, Ca. 92504.

The official kickoff date is this Friday, December 9th, 2011.

On that date, we will have some CHP officers and squad cars here from noon until 3pm if you would like to get some pictures. From 1pm - 8pm, 99.1 KGGI will be on site.

Toy collection will go on until December 22nd at which all toys will be picked up by the CHP. After they are sorted and processed, they will be distributed to Riverside children who are down on their luck. All toys donated will stay local.

Of course, there are some rules as to what toys can be donated. I am sure you know them, but here is a reminder.

All toys must be unwrapped and in their original unopened package.
All toys must be non violent in nature.
And finally, all toys must be incapable of causing a child harm.

In previous years we have collected lots of toys for needy kids and we would like to continue this tradition.

If you are willing and able, we encourage you do drop by and donate a toy.
