SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3, 0930
Fellow COTV Santa’s Helpers
That very merry time of year will be upon us before we know it, so get out your calendar and circle the date of Sunday, December 3, now, so that you can make sure to participate in COTV’s Annual Toy Run.
Now that we are such a large group, we can help to make a real difference to children who might not otherwise receive any gifts. As always, we and the Marines ask for UNWRAPPED toys and gifts. In addition to the easy choices for young ones, we need to remember older children as well. Sporting goods, books, games, etc. make good choices. Gifts don’t have to be expensive and that helps, so that we can donate even more than we did last year. Remember, shop for toys and gifts, NOT GIFT CARDS.
WE WILL BRING THE DONUTS……YOU BRING
YOUR OWN COFFEE, TEA OR MILK &
A CHAIR IF YOU WISH TO REST
YOUR WEARY BONES
We will get together on Sunday, December 3, at 9:30am at our usual meeting place, Kohl’s parking lot.
The Marines from the Camp Pendleton program will be there with a truck to pick up our donations from 9:30-10:30am. Donuts will be available at Kohl’s for those who come early enough, but bring your own coffee, tea or hot chocolate. If you want donuts, you should RSVP for the Meet the Marines portion as well, so that we have enough.
At 10:45am, we will depart for a short mystery run
a little longer than last year, but with no potty
stop to our early lunch destination.
We will be celebrating the holiday with more food at 11:30 am. Please RSVP as soon as possible so that we can confirm the group seating with the soup kitchen (if you will be joining us for lunch). We will need a final head count by Thursday, November 30, so that they can make sure to have plenty of staff on hand to serve us and plenty of room to seat us and plenty of food on hand to feed us.
Please RSVP as soon as possible so that we can confirm the group seating (if you will be joining us for lunch).

Please be sure to don your “gay apparel” (Santa hats, that is!) and bring lots of toys for needy girls and boys!

Our Toy Runs have a lot of attendees.
We can’t just show up with more
folks and expect to be seated.
You must RSVP for Lunch.
