Annual Toy Drive Begins at San Jacinto Wildlife Area

The staff at San Jacinto Wildlife Area has begun their Annual Toy Drive! Tom Trakes, Wildlife Habitat Supervisor, at San Jacinto Wildlife Area advised SoCalHunt that this year the Toy Drive will be to benefit two deserving recipients. Not only will they supply toys and Radio Flyer wagons for Loma Linda Children’s Hospital, as they have in the past, but toys will also be donated to Bryant Park Head Start Preschool.

I would encourage all hunters that show up to hunt at San Jacinto in the next few weeks to bring along a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the kids. This is a chance to show the general public that hunters have a heart. The toys for the Head Start Preschool are intended for 4 to 5 year old boys and girls. Toys are also needed for Loma Linda Children’s Hospital but there is a special need at Loma Linda for the Radio Flyer Pathfinder (model 2700) wagons. These wagons are helpful to the children in the hospital as they can be rolled around in them to the various areas of the hospital with their IV’s and other medication in tow. The wagons retail for around $80. Tom said that anyone, or any group of people that would like to pitch in together, can contact him to donate funds towards a wagon.

Donations for the Bryant Park Head Start Program will be accepted until December 21st, with the San Jacinto Staff delivering them on the 22nd, and donations for Loma Linda will be accepted until December 22nd, with the San Jacinto Staff delivering them on the 23rd.

Please take this opportunity to donate to the San Jacinto Annual Toy Drive and support this noble effort.

For further details and/or to make arrangements to donate a wagon to Loma Linda, please contact Tom at (951)-236-3040 or Dirk at (951)-634-3264. Toys can be donated at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area Office at 17050 Davis Road, Lakeview, CA 92567.

Thank you for your support!
