The Santa Barbara California Highway Patrol invites community members to support the annual CHiPs for Kids toy drive by bringing new, unwrapped toys to any Central Coast CHP office, or any of the participating locations listed below, Dec. 1-19.

With the holiday season upon us, the CHP wants to do its part to ensure all area children have fond memories of this time. The donated toys will be delivered to local families in need.

“We hope to help as many families as possible,” said Jonathan Gutierrez, public information officer. “We take pride in serving the Santa Barbara community, not only by protecting the roadways, but helping those in need.”
