The staff at Patton State Hospital in Highland has been collecting toys for a the last few weeks in the lead up to CAPT's 'Techs for Tots' event this Saturday, which includes a parade, a motorcycle caravan to the Highland YMCA, a volunteer breakfast and, of course, a visit by Santa to help distribute gifts to needy kids.
Last year's 'Techs for Tots' provided gifts to more than 100 children, CAPT says.
Motorcyclists who want to join the caravan can pay an entry fee of $10 or donate an unwrapped toy on the day of the event. Click here for CAPT's press advisory, which has more details.
