The holiday season is in full swing – preparations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even New Year’s are already underway for many. Many stores have started playing Christmas music, decorations are being sold, coffee cups have holiday wishes on them. We at SunWest associate this time of year with a tradition close to our hearts: our toy drive.
Partnering with the Peoria Firefighters Charities, we collect toys at participating branches. After about a month, we give the firefighters everything that has been donated, and their volunteers sort through the toys that will be delivered to families in need on Christmas Eve. Being able to help the community by assisting the Peoria Firefighters in their mission is a source of pride and passion for us.
This is where you come in! From November 12 to December 12, four of our branches will be collecting unopened toys for ages 0-13. Bring in your donation to our Cactus, Arrowhead, Goodyear, Mesa, or Pantano branches to put in our toy drive box. For more information, check out our Events page here.
We’re sure to put smiles not only on the faces of the kids getting toys, but the parents knowing their children won’t feel left out of this tradition, and the firefighters who get to deliver these gifts of joy to the families. If you have any questions, stop by any of the four branches above, or message us on social media. Together, let’s spread some holiday cheer!
