CBS4 and Boys & Girls Clubs Sponsor Care 4 Colorado Toy Drive

Jay Clark and Wendy Aiello are championing this year’s Care 4 Colorado toy drive, and they are asking members of Denver’s PR community to help ensure that every child in Colorado receives a gift during this holiday season:

Helping is simple: When you are out shopping for family or friends, just pickup a new toy that is $20 or less. Games, dolls, stuffed animals, building toys (Legos, blocks), sports balls, remote control cars, art supplies, action figures, etc. Drop the toys off at your local King Soopers in the Boys & Girls Clubs bins.

Additional locations where toys can be dropped off are:

  • CBS4 lobby located at 1044 Lincoln St. – Denver, 80203
  • Boys & Girls Clubs Program Support Center located at 2017 W. 9th Ave – Denver,     80204
  • In-store collection day December 13 – CBS4 and Boys & Girls Clubs will be on site at the King Soopers located at Colorado & Yale from 5 a.m. – 7 p.m. to collect toys

Please consider applying your PR prowess for the benefit of Denver kids and forward this message to your contacts. A new toy for a child who would otherwise not receive one is more than just something to play with; it is hope that better days are ahead because their community cares about them.

If you would like more info about the work Boys & Girls Club does with Denver kids, here is the link.  We all know the power of PR.  Pass it on!

Thank you for your consideration and cheers for a fantastic holiday season!
