Bay Area entrepreneurs, Connie Villeta with Wicked! PhotoBooth and Edylyn Lagapa with New York Life conducts their 2nd annual toy drive. Last year, they were able to fill up 9 balikbayan boxes shipped to the Philippines and was sponsored by LBC. This time around, they’re collaborating with “Toys for Tots” & “Project Pearls” the toy drive will be held at “The Shops at Tanforan” in San Bruno.
“We realize the holiday season won’t be the same this year, but we’re here to change that” says, Connie. We want to provide the community some normality and allow them to virtually take their photo with Santa in a safely manner.
Edylyn, also Board of Director with San Bruno Chamber explains the toy drive. In exchange, for a photo-op with virtual Santa along with prints for keepsake, they’re asking for the community to donate a toy.
“This way families can still have their holiday routine with Santa Claus.” We look forward to seeing the community get together again.
Project Pearls Founder, Melissa Villa expresses her excitement about this event “Toys can be a powerful means of doing good this Christmas!”
Thank you to our partners and sponsors who continue to support us in this cause. The toy drive will be on December 5th, 2020 from 11am to 3pm. The U.S marines will also be present along with their military vehicle for families to take photos with.
