2nd Annual Toy Drive
November 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - December 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pmFree
Join Andrew Chavarria and the 7024U Youth Outreach Center in their annual TOY DRIVE!
They have a major goal to help the underprivileged children of Artesia to receive toys and gifts this 2018 Christmas season. Last year they were able to reach over seventy-five children in our community of Artesia, New Mexico. This year they are hoping to go above and beyond that! They are asking for any and all Christmas gift donations for boys and girls of all ages, from newborn to teens! All of the children of Artesia can be shown lots of love this year. They will only be accepting NEW items this year and will have various drop off locations around town, one being the Artesia Chamber of Commerce located at 107 N. 1st Street. Other drop off locations include: Artesia National Bank, Alma’s, Forever Strong Nutrition, Bennie’s Western Wear, Mustang Graphics, Redline Fitness, KSVP Radio, and The Jahva House.
They also have a GoFundMe account that is setup for any person who would just like to donate money to their cause. The link is below if that is an easier avenue for you to use. All funds will go towards buying gifts for the toy drive.
This is the time of year to spread love and give to those less fortunate. So go out, buy a couple of new toys, sweaters, socks, or maybe some art supplies and drop them off at one of the many locations.
Then on December 21, 2018 at the Artesia Recreational Center located at 612 N. 8th Street from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, Santa Claus will be coming to spread Christmas cheer and hand out the toys to boys and girls of all ages.
If anyone is interested in helping, donating, sponsoring or just needs more information you can contact Andrew Chavarria at 575-308-9705 or Jessica Caballero 575-736-7024
Merry Christmas Everyone!
