Bartell Drugs is once again partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its 12th annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N Joy” drive, now through December 13.

The toy donations will be accepted at 61 Bartell Drugs locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Toys will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.”

Shoreline Bartell Drugs is located in the Gateway Plaza shopping center at N 185th and Aurora.  

Donation options include:

--Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it.

--Donate new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for children up to 14 years-of-age.

 “This community-wide drive helps make the holiday season brighter for deserving children in the neighborhoods we serve,” said Bartell Drugs President and CEO Brian Unmacht. “The generous response by our customers over the past eleven years has been gratifying.”

The five-week drive in 2014 generated over 4,543 toy donations by Bartells’ customers — the estimated equivalent of $68,145 in toys provided to the Salvation Army.

Family-owned since 1890, Seattle-based Bartell Drugs is proud to celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2015 with customers and employees. Four generations of the Bartell family have continuously focused on the future - and how the drugstore chain could better serve its customers. Operating 64 locations in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties, it is the nation’s oldest family-owned drugstore chain.
