The Southern California Velo Cycling Club (SC Velo) and Incycle Bicycle Stores are sponsoring a Christmas Toy Collection drive beginning on Saturday November 29th and concluding on Saturday December 13th. A Toy Ride will be held on Sunday, December 14th to take the collected toys to the San Dimas Sheriff’s station so that they can be distributed to needy families. All interested cyclists are invited to join with SC Velo riders to support this worthy cause by donating toys and/or participating in the ride.
Unwrapped toys can be left in collection bins at Incycle Bicycle Stores in San Dimas, Chino, Pasadena, and Rancho Cucamonga between November 29th and December 13th. Everyone donating toys to the Toy Drive will receive an Incycle water bottle in appreciation for their donation.
The SC Velo Toy Ride will depart from the San Dimas Incycle store on Sunday, December 14th at about 9:00 AM for an easy, no-drop, 1 hour+ ride with SAG support to the San Dimas Sheriff’s Station to turn the collected toys over to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department representatives.
All toys collected as part of this drive will be delivered to kids of needy families by deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s San Dimas station. Last year, the San Dimas station was able to help a large number of families during the Christmas holiday because of the Toy Ride.
