Toys For Tots
 

  • The 10th Annual Toys for Tots Christmas Caravan for Kids event will be held on Saturday, December 1st, 2012 and hosted by the Mile-Hi Jeep Club. This event brings together the four wheel drive community in Colorado and supports the United States Marines Corps' Toys for Tots 2012 campaign.The Christmas Caravan for Kids begins early in the morning as groups of 4 wheelers gather at designated meeting points throughout the front range area. Once convened, each group "caravans" to Jefferson County Fairgrounds where the Marines are waiting to receive our toy donations for distribution through their system. Following the toy donations, participants receive a free lunch and have the opportunity to meet and talk with area merchants at our "Meet and Greet" Also accruing during the "Meet and Greet" there will be drawings for prizes donated by the local businesses, live music, and fun on the RTI ramp. We would love for this years event to be the largest ever single day donation of toys to the Marines.


    Here are the 5 Denver/Metro locations that we will be meeting at for this years 10th Annual Toys for Tots Christmas Caravan for Kids on Saturday, December 1st. Show up at any of these locations with your new unwrapped toy at 9:00am to get in line. Then each Caravan will leave at 10:00am and head to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds to donate your toy to the Marines so they can distribute it to the families that need them. Then you will be able to enjoy the FREE "Meet and Greet" with several local 4WD Business, 4WD Clubs, Racing Clubs, and more. Plus there will be a FREE lunch and a FREE drawing for several great prizes!

Looks like we may be in on this as well!

BrianTG 11-27-2012 10:58 AM

I have worked nearly 30 days in a row. This seems like a legit cause for a vacation day. If I'm unable to make it I will do what I can to meet up with people to donate gifts.
