13th Annual Christmas Toy Drive/Car Show hosted by Outlawz Car Club and GEM
December 7 @ 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
We would like to thank everyone who has participated in past Outlawz Toy Drives and Golden Empire Mustang Car Shows and invite you all back to this year’s show and toy drive. If you have not attended in the past we would love to have you out for your ﬁrst time. This event continues to raise funds and toys for Kern Medical Pediatrics. Due to our community’s generosity, we have been able to expand our support to include the Pediatric Outpatient Clinic and the NICU Reunion. It is a humbling feeling to see how much appreciation is shown from the families and the happiness it brings the children. As we participate in each of these events, we have the opportunity to meet and know some of the kids. Last year, there was a ﬁve year old boy who attended two of the pediatric Christmas events. At the ﬁrst event, this young boy looked around the room at all the toys and then reached down to the ground and picked up two plastic toy soldier’s that had fallen out of a bag full of toy soldier’s from the dollar store. The boy selected the two toy soldiers as his toy. A few days later, at the second event, the boy refused to select another toy. When asked why, with the biggest smile, he reached into his pocket and pulled out the two toy soldier’s he had selected at the ﬁrst event. No words were needed or said. We both knew he had gotten the toy he wanted and he was happy. It is not always the biggest, shiniest, or most expensive toy that creates joy for these kids. This young boy was happy and content to be at a Christmas Party and to have 2 plastic toy soldier’s. It is refreshing to see kids experience joy and happiness and it served as a reminder that we can even a small toy can make a big difference. . Thank you,
