This holiday season Bartell Drugs is teaming up with the Salvation Army for its 7th annual “Toy ‘N’ Joy Giving Tree” drive, going on from now until Friday, December 17.
The community can participate by bringing new, unwrapped toys to Bartell’s, which is located at Gateway Plaza, 185th and Aurora, 18420 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline 98133.
Toys collected during the drive will be distributed a week before Christmas to low-income children and youth through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.”
Various donation options are available:
- Donate new, unopened gifts for children up to 17-years-of-age.
- Cash donations to be used towards the purchase of a gift.
- Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy Giving Tree” in the store and return the gift with the tag to the donation barrel.
Since 2009 over 4,100 children around Puget Sound have benefited from this event.
Founded in 1890 in Seattle, Bartell Drugs is the oldest family-owned drugstore chain in the U.S.
