A local Toyota club called the Central Valley Crawlers started a toy drive for the local Childrens Hospital 5 years ago. It has grown every year. This year rigs started in Bakersfield CA 120 miles south of the Hospital and after a few predetermined meeting stops along the way ended up at the Hospital. Another group started 75 North of the Hospital and headed south and met at the hospital. Participants brought wagons and new unwrapped toys. The wagons are used to move kids around the hospital. The toys are setup in a room so parents of kids in the hospital can go grab a toy or two to bring to their child who is in the hospital during the holiday season. If you have lived in the valley for any length of time you either had a kid who has been to the hospital or know someone who has. Derek Carr the QB for the Oakland Raiders son spent many days at this hospital when he was born. He will be wearing cleats at this weeks game in honor of this hospital.

Over 30 clubs 125 rigs and 300 people participated in the event. After the toys were dropped off many people went to our local church for a large barbecue and to hang out for a few hours. Unfortunately I was not able to attend but gave several toys to a friend to deliver for me.
