The Coachella Valley Rescue mission is getting off to a successful start with Santa as they plan to give away about 15,000 toys to nearly 5,000 children in the valley.
It’s all part of their annual Toy Giveaway program that starts at 8am at the CVRM center. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will greet the children while Santa’s elves will hand out candy canes.
CVRM requests donations of new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls from infancy to pre-teens. Dolls, books, games, skateboards, sports equipment, balls, action figures, Legos, cars, trucks, and Barbies are some of the favorites.
Toy donations can be sent directly to CVRM at 47470 Van Buren St. in Indio.
Be sure to check out News Channel 3 at 6:30pm for event highlights and what the organizers have to say about the event.
