One of my favorite holiday (and beyond!) toy drives, the local Law Enforcement Teddy Bear Drive! This is a drive to collect stuffed animals for kids at Rady Children's Hospital. My kids have benefitted from this, and for a child, getting a stuffed animal after surgery is very comforting. The local Carmel Valley Police Station on El Camino Real will have a collection box at the front counter for new stuffed animals with tags still attached. Drop off on Mondays or Thursdays, 8am-4pm. The last day to give a bear is December 10th. For more information contact JST Officer Brigitta Belz (858) 523-7027, or see the SDPD Northwestern Division Facebook Page.
