DC/MD/VA Residents: Support the AVGeek Toys For Tots Drive

The holidays are a great time to remember that not everyone is as fortunate as my family is.  Over the past few years, we’ve done a holiday toy drive benefiting Toys For Tots in the DC Area.  Trevor from Tagging Miles reached out to me again this year to organize some donation efforts.

He’s back in one of our frequent happy hour haunts, Bar Bao in Arlington:

Bar Bao
3100 Clarendon Blvd
Clarendon Metro Station
Arlington, VA 22201

The event will be 6 December, 6-9pm.  You can register free for a spot.

Unfortunately (and fortunately) I won’t be able to attend the event (I might sneak down for the last hour).  After Trevor locked in the date, my daughter was invited to sing at an event with her select chorus group that evening.  It’s a special night for our family, but I’m sorry to miss the festivities.

That being said, I’ll be sending down plenty of toys for kids that might not otherwise have something special this holiday season.  I hope you’ll join me.

  1. Ed,

    Thanks for suggesting that your readers donate toys! I’d also suggest donating to the end user ie, a local church. This way the donation goes to the neediest children as T4T doesn’t vent who they give toys to.

    I’m dhammer53, and I’m in the toy business.
