CHP Newhall Explorers’ Stuffed Toy Drive Is Well Underway

The spring stuffed toy drive run by the California Highway Patrol‘s Newhall Explorer program is underway. Started by Explorer Alexis Briano to benefit the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, the drive has already collected about 110 toys.

“We are still looking for donations. We appreciate anything people give us,” Briano said. “Part of being an Explorer is giving back to the community.”

Donations can be dropped off at the CHP Newhall Headquarters on The Old Road until Wednesday, April 17.

For more information, contact Briano at alexis_briano@sbcglobal.net.

ORIGINAL STORY

The California Highway Patrol’s Newhall Explorer program is hosting a stuffed toy drive for the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for Children’s Cancer.

They began collecting toys at their headquarters on The Old Road on Monday, March 25, until Wednesday, April 17. Only new stuffed toys (roughly the size of a Beanie Baby or Beanie Buddy) will be accepted.

Now in its second year, the toy drive was started by Explorer and College of the Canyons graduate Alexis Briano. After attending a Michael Hoefflin gala in 2011, Briano began looking for ways to help them reach kids with cancer.

Last year, the Newhall Explorers hoped to collect 300 bears. Community support was overwhelming, and they donated 600 bears to Michael Hoefflin to be distributed as part of Kare Kits, which are full of practical supplies and gifts for families of children recently diagnosed with cancer.

The CHP Explorer program gives young adults ages 15-21 the opportunity to experience a career in law enforcement while working alongside officers. Students interested in participating must have at least a 2.0 GPA and have no drug or felony convictions.
