Toys for Tots Collection on December 13th at Westview Promenade

Holiday traditions come in all forms around Westview Promenade, but only one brings year-round benefits: the Toys for Tots Donation Collection event on Saturday, December 13th from noon – 3:00 p.m. The Golden Gears Car Club will host the Toys for Tots collection with the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve. The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

During the event, enjoy listening to the sounds of live holiday music by the popular trio Gary and the Groove. Feel free to take a selfie with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and be among the first 250 children to arrive and receive a special gift. Parents and kids will also enjoy the military vehicle that will be on display (pending availability) and the diverse Golden Gears member vehicles – historic, classic, muscle, and special interest vehicles.

This event is free to the public.

Thanks to Cheryl for sending this along.

Here is a little bit more about the Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program:

The Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program Inc. began in April 1984 as a special project under the Frederick County 4H Horse and Pony Club. We are incorporated in the state of Maryland as a non-profit 501c3 organization.

  • We provide a seven week session of riding instruction each spring and fall
  • Our 76 students ride free of charge
  • Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and all day Saturdays.

Our program always has a waiting list of applicants, but our enrolment is limited by money and the availability of volunteers.

We are always in need of funds to maintain or replace equipment for the riders and horses. Funds are needed to care for our horses’ health, including feed, veterinarian care and hoof care.

The Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program is not funded through any Federal, State or County funds. We rely solely on private donations, local clubs, private individuals, fund raising – such as cookie sales, pizza sales etc.
