Sponsors are welcome. There will be free pizza from Little Caesars of Whatcom/Skagit County and soda. Toy distribution will begin at 9 a.m., shortly after the ribbon cutting.

Vince McLeod, coordinator for Toys for Tots Bellingham Whatcom County and multimedia sales manager for The Bellingham Business Journal, said that Toys for Tots is one of the oldest and most successful toy drive campaigns in the United States.
