It was a toy drive, we thought, wasn’t going to happen. And, when Toys ‘R Us closed its doors, Toys for Tots lost its corporate sponsor, and had a shortage of 10,000 toys.
With the help of Kern County, and a special delivery from Bakersfield City School District – the toy drive was made possible.
On Saturday, Toys for Tots distributed toys to children who would not have otherwise received a gift under their tree.
The toy distribution lasted all day and no child was turned away without a toy this Christmas.
