The wet weather on Saturday didn’t stop Santa and our incredible volunteer elves from hosting our annual Holiday Toy Drive!

Children and their families starting lining up early on Saturday morning, December 17th, in anticipation of our annual Holiday Toy Drive. Though some snow had coated the ground overnight and rain fell, our guests kept dry under plenty of canopies and umbrellas. Volunteers served hot chocolate and cookies to everyone waiting.

Once inside, each child was paired with a volunteer elf to help them shop for the perfect toy. We had an abundance of toys, thanks to generous donors, so every child was able to find something to make them smile. Families were also able to take a photo with Santa and enjoy more sweet treats.

The day was a huge success with over 500 children choosing toys to bring home!
