To support our local community this year, the Redlands Airport Association is hosting a charity toy drive to benefit The Salvation Army San Bernardino Corps. The Salvation Army has been helping families with holiday needs since 1891. The toys collected will go to kids in the local area. Our friends at the Salvation Army are extremely excited to have our help.
The Toy Drive is On!
We are collecting toys at convenient locations in the local community beginning November 1st and continuing through December 3rd at multiple businesses and City of Redlands facilities. These entities have volunteered to host a toy collection box. We really appreciate their support of our toy drive! Please drop off a new unwrapped toy at one of these locations during our drive.
