The Temecula Area CHP will be Hosting the Toy Drive Between 5-8 pm
California Highway Patrol officers from the Temecula Area station will be hosting a toy drive at a Murrieta Walgreens tonight. “CHiP’s for Kids” started from humble beginnings over 22 years ago in Los Angeles. Back then, a small group of California Highway Patrol officers banded together and decided to help the less fortunate children living in the communities they served.
This popular program has grown tremendously, and now nearly every CHP office in the State participates in helping children in their communities through this program. The Temecula CHP area has successfully participated in this program for the last decade. With the help of compassionate supporters in the communities we serve, our Area squad has been able to distribute toys to hundreds of less fortunate children in the Southwest Riverside County.
Once again, the CHP and Walgreens have partnered up in efforts to collect toys for less fortunate children. Members of the community wanting to assist can drop off any unwrapped toy at any CHP Office or Walgreens stores.
Community members are urged to bring unwrapped toys to the collection event to help officers fill their cruisers. CHiP’s for Kids toy collection runs through December 22, 2018. Uniformed CHP officers will distribute the donated toys the week prior and up to Christmas. Any assistance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, contact Public Information Officer Mike Lassig at (951)506-2000 or or any Walgreens store.
