Last year, so many toys were donated, they were spread around the restaurant
Gretchen McConnell, owner/partner of Starfish, says, “Every year we donate to Toys for Tots, but last year we donated all the toys to the Boys and Girls Club of Laguna Beach. We were hoping to do the same this year, but the devastation across California with the wildfires was something we wanted to help give Christmas assistance to. Last year we collected about 150 toys.”
Gretchen continues, “The toys will be mailed to distribution centers in Chico. Because their resources are spread so thin, if we get over about 75 toys, we are donating the remainder to “Spark of Love” at our local fire station for the kids of Orange County. I am still navigating and waiting on more information for additional centers for the Camp Fire victims, and don’t want a good deed to be overwhelming with lack of distribution resources.”
They will be sending the toys out on Friday, Dec 14, and will collect them all week for anyone wanting to contribute!
