BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — This Saturday the California Highway Patrol- Bakersfield will be at the Target East Hills to collect donations of new, unwrapped toys, gifts, or sporting goods for kids in need.

The CHP said its goal is to "make the holidays brighter for disadvantaged children in Kern County," as it collects these items for its tenth annual CHiPs for KiDs Toy Drive. Toys collected from the drive benefit local children aged 0 to 16.

The drop-off location for this Saturday is at the Target located on 3401 Mall View Road, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For over 25 years, the CHiPs for KiDs toy drive has helped families.

If you need additional information on other drop-off locations please contact Public Information Officer Robert Rodriguez, at (661) 396-6653.
