CHP Collecting Donations for Chips for Kids Toy Drive

Through Dec, 20, Central Coast California Highway Patrol offices will be collection sites for the Chips for Kids Toy Drive.

Collections barrels will be located in the lobbies of CHP offices. The public can drop off new, unwrapped toys that will be distributed to less fortunate children and teens this holiday season. 

Last year, the Chips for Kids Toy Drive collected and distributed more than 4,000 toys throughout Central Coast communities.

For more information on the toy drive, call CHP officer Daniel Barba at 805.967.1234.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
