Letter to the Editor: NEARLY 13,000 TOYS DISTRIBUTED AS ART OF CARE ‘N SHARE DRIVE

Editor, Times-Advocate:

The Care ‘n Share Toy Drive 2019, a project of Torrey Pines Rotary Club, is pleased to announce distribution of over 12,850 new and gently used stuffed animals donated to our collection drive during the San Diego County Fair.  

We could not have done this without the wonderful support of the entire San Diego region It is heartwarming to see the smiles on the faces of the children who choose to donate their prizes so that another child can play with them, and then the delighted faces of the children who receive the donations.

A  hearty thanks goes out to the staff of Pacific Western Bank for hosting a collection box, and to the wonderful Escondido area residents who filled the box to overflowing! Thanks too to NCL Del Sol Chapter and NCL Poway Chapter for their help at the Fair, and to Del Mar Plaza, Two Men and a Truck, and Affordable Printer Care for their logistical support.  The stuffed animal donations have been distributed to eight local organizations serving health and welfare needs of children in the region. Founded by Nancy in 2009, San Diegans have donated and the Care ‘n Share Toy Drive has distributed over 95,000 toys to put smiles on the faces of children in need.
