Tulare County community members are invited to Fill the Trolley with new, unwrapped toys and gifts for the Friends of Tulare County Child Welfare Services Children’s Toy Drive. Fill the Trolley events will occur at the Visalia Farmers Market in the Sequoia Mall parking lot every Saturday and at the Visalia Mall parking lot every Sunday during the month of November, through a partnership with First Transit.
“CWS is thrilled to work in collaboration with First Transit to Fill the Trolley with unwrapped toys and gifts, because without community sponsorship, it would be impossible to reach our goals to provide each of our children with a toy or gift,” said HHSA Division Manager-CWS, Courtney Sallam. “Sixty percent of toys and gifts distributed by the CWS Children’s Toy Drive result from generous donations from the community, so come join us as we Fill the Trolley; we hope to see you there!”
The Fill the Trolley events for the Friends of Tulare County Child Welfare Services Children’s Toy Drive will occur at the Sequoia Plaza Mall, 3303 S. Mooney Blvd. in Visalia on Saturday, November 16, 23, and 30, and at the Visalia Mall, 2031 S. Mooney Blvd., on Sunday, November 17, 24, and December 1.
The Child Welfare Services (CWS) Children’s Toy drive is a community-based event serving children and teens receiving Child Welfare Services. This year, the CWS Children’s Toy Drive hopes to serve 1,550 children and youth.
