Car club feels drive for giving spirit at Toys for Sequim Kids

For more than 15 years, members of the Sequim Valley Car Club have rallied toys and books at their November meeting to help Sequim children for Sequim Community Aid’s Toys for Sequim Kids event, set this year for Dec. 13 at the Sequim Prairie Grange.

They filled Ralph Elston’s 1939 Buick with toys and delivered them to Clallam County Fire District 3’s station 34 on Dec. 5.

The club, a local chapter of the The Vintage Motor Car Club of America, has more than 80 members and meets at 6 p.m. the third Monday of each month except December at Sequim Elks Lodge, 143 Port Williams Road. With questions on the club, call David McIntosh at 360-461-4431.

Clallam County Fire District 3, 323 N. Fifth Ave., is one of several drop-off points for toys including Christmas trees with slips of paper requesting specific toys at Grocery Outlet, 1045 W. Washington St., Clallam Co-Op Farm and Garden, 216 E. Washington St., YMCA of Sequim, 610 N. Fifth Ave., and QFC, 990 E. Washington St. Toys are accepted through Monday, Dec. 11.

The 70th Toys for Sequim Kids runs 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13, at Sequim Prairie Grange, 290 Macleay Road, where volunteers for the nonprofit provide toys, clothes and more for babies to children in eighth grade in the Sequim School District boundaries.

Sequim Community Aid, a nonprofit, provides year-round help with utility and rent for those in need.

Call Sequim Community Aid at 681-3731 for assistance and/or to volunteer.
