The El Paso Chihuahuas and area Chick-fil-A restaurants present “Paws for Presents”, a holiday toy drive assisting the Child Crisis Center of El Paso and Jardin de los Niños in Las Cruces.
“We hope the El Paso and Las Cruces communities will come out and support the Paws for Presents Toy Drive so that we can bring some holiday cheer to those who are going through difficult times,” said Chick-Fil-A Operator Edgar Ortega. “In Chick-fil-A, our goal is to inspire people to take good care of each other. We look forward to seeing the joy on the faces of the people who are touched by our community’s generosity.”
The drive started Tuesday, November 27th and continues through Saturday, December 15th. The Chihuahuas and Chick-fil-A request all gifts be new and not gift wrapped for children up to the age of 12.
“The Chihuahuas are proud to partner with Chick-fil-A on this special toy drive to help give kids in our region a smile and some toys during the holidays,” said MountainStar Sports Group Senior Vice President and Chihuahuas General Manager Brad Taylor.
Donations can be dropped off at any of the seven El Paso Chick-fil-A locations, the three Chick-fil-A locations in Las Cruces or the Chihuahuas Team Shop.
The Team Shop is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Any monetary donations can be made at the Chihuahuas Team Shop located at Southwest University Park. Monetary donations will not be accepted at Chick-fil-A locations.
