CHiPs for Kids began in Los Angeles County (Southern Division) in 1988. CHP officers collected toys and delivered them to the Orthopaedic Children's Institute of Los Angeles, various boys' and girls' clubs, and directly to families in need.
The goal of the annual toy drive is to continue to build a positive relationship between law enforcement and young children, to develop trust, and help ensure children enjoy the holiday season.
Over the past three decades, the program has grown to include each of the CHP's eight Divisions throughout the state, with thousands of toys collected and distributed every year during the holiday season.
Due to the circumstances we find ourselves in this year, we are limited to the number of physical drop offs for the toys we need to fulfill our goal for this year. With that in consideration, CHiPs for Kids is working with our partners to create a digital toy drive via a donation system. Every dollar collected via this donation page will go directly towards purchasing toys for kids and families in need. Your help in achieving this goal is greatly appreciated!
