Toys for Tots Holiday Party! – December 13th
Join us in helping our community by donating bicycle helmets, elbow pads and knee pads to the annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve “Toys for Tots” drive. The event will take place at the Ballena Yacht Club at 1150 Ballena Blvd in Alameda on December 13th from 6pm until 930pm.
The Marines have noted that while many bikes are donated each year, people rarely provide safety helmets and pads, which are also needed to increase safety. It is our hope that we can extend our occupational safety and health expertise to our community by helping children stay safe, this small investment will pay off in many ways. As we teach children the importance of being safe they will carry that with them as they age and move into the workplace.
There will be music and finger food provided, as well as a cash bar. The Marines will be there for “Toys for Tots” so please bring a child safety-related donation like a bike helmet. Member recognition and service awards will also be given.
