Bartell launches eighth annual toy donation drive
SEATTLE — Regional chain Bartell Drugs is working with the Salvation Army to sponsor a toy donation drive, the chain said.
Starting Monday and lasting through Dec. 11, Bartell's began collecting new, unwrapped toys during its eighth annual Salvation Army "Toy 'N' Joy" drive.
Toys collected at the chain's stores will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army's "toy warehouses."
"The drive helps make the holiday season brighter for deserving children," Bartell chairman and CEO George Bartell said. "The generosity and support of our customers over the past seven years has been gratifying."
