The West Coast Christmas Show & Artisan Marketplace is a partner with TOY MOUNTAIN as a drop off center for unwrapped children’s toys
On December 13th we will be bringing all the donations to Guiildford Town Centre where the “mountain” is located. From there the good people at The Salvation Army will then deliver these toys to less fortunate children in our community in time for Christmas morning.
Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and a discount applies if bought online. Admission is free for children 16 and under.
