Nearly a quarter of American children live in poverty. For families in poverty, hard financial decisions must be made, and some families are forced to go without buying their children gifts for Christmas.

Luckily, through the efforts of toy drives, many of these kids get something to unwrap on Christmas. Christmas has always been about love and giving. If you want to bring joy to a child this Christmas, you can do so while attending a fun event this Saturday (December 3rd, 2022). I think it is a wonderful thing to do with your child, if you have one, to teach them an important lesson in compassion and the true meaning of Christmas.

Sonic Drive-In and Communities in Schools have partnered for Toy Drive this Saturday. The event is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Canyon West shopping center between the Verizon store and Firehouse Subs. While you are out shopping for your loved ones, why not pick up a new, unwrapped gift or bike for a child in need? Conveniently, Canyon West shopping center has Target, Ross, 2nd and Charles, and other nearby retail outlets.

However- this event is more than a donation box! Sonic will have giveaways and there will be face painting, a magic show, and balloon animals. And the big man himself will be there, so if you need Santa to see you do something really good, here's your chance to make up for some naughtiness.

I'd like to personally thank you in advance for helping a child in need have a beautiful, fun Christmas. You are awesome.
