Toys Toiletries and Toques – Duncan
December 2, 2017 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Toys Toiletries and Toques is the Club’s passion project. For the past six years we have operated a program to collect non-food items to distribute equally to the five Food Banks in the Cowichan Valley to add to the food contributions of many other hard working organizations.
In our seventh year, we have partnered with 25 Drop Off locations throughout the Cowichan Valley who are happy to accept NEW non-food donations of toys, toiletries, toques, as well as towels, slippers, toothpaste, you name it. We have always said new is best for our program as these donations are meant to add value to needy families that need some support.
The Drop Off locations often holds events to increase donations, and promote our program through their own marketing areas. In turn, we support the Drop Off locations and the program heavily through Social Media. We are, after all, the Cowichan Valley Social Media Club!
We promote through November and have a final donation day outside Walmart from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 2. We take all donations to a separate storage area, carefully divide them by five for the Five Food Banks in the Cowichan Valley and deliver them out. The Food Banks know their clients and decide who needs toys, who doesn’t, etc.
