Another holiday season is upon us, the Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce the Calaveras Business Resource Center (CBRC) is now a public donation site for the 2017 Marine Corps Toys for Tots Toy Drive. The CBRC is located at 7 North Main Street in San Andreas.
Marine Corps Toys for Tots began in 1947 with one homemade doll. The program has since grown to over 800 local “campaigns” throughout the United States and has distributed over a half a billion toys to millions of less fortunate children. Toys for Tots came to Calaveras County in 2015. They work with many churches, civic organizations, local businesses, and individual citizens to collect and purchase toys in order to make Christmas a little brighter for many local children.
Since 2015, the Valley Springs Marine Corps Toys for Tots have distributed over 7500 toys, 900 books, and 2300 stocking stuffers to 1639 kids right here in Calaveras County.
The CBRC will be accepting donations starting October 23rd during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:00am till 4:30pm. Donations will be accepted through December 17th. For more information, please contact the Chamber office at 209-754-5400 or email@example.com.
