Toy House fundraiser is Saturday in Chilliwack

They are collecting new, unwrapped toys from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at IHOP for Community Services

It’s a terrific Christmas warmup activity for Chilliwack families.

RE/MAX Nyda Realty’s 24th Annual Toy House is set for Saturday, Dec. 9 at IHOP, starting at 10 a.m.

Everyone is invited to pop by IHOP, drop off a gift or two, enjoy some refreshments and enter the draw.

“Once again we are assisting the Chilliwack Community Services Christmas Sharing Program in collecting new, unwrapped toys for less fortunate children in our community,” said organizers. “Please accept this invitation to join us. We sincerely appreciate your participation and support. Because you care enough to help, many people will have a meaningful Christmas!”

For the kids there are activities like face-painting, as well as tattoos, goodies and treat bags. A photographer will be taking photos with santa.

The need is great for all ages, especially teens and preteens.

“If you are feeling particularly generous, please consider two or three smaller gifts rather than one quite expensive item. Please leave your new gift unwrapped, but feel free to include wrapping paper.”

Note they have more stuffed animals than they can ever hand out.
