    Christmas Caravan for Kids is an annual event by the Colorado Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Inc, area vendors, and 4 wheelers throughout the state benefiting the Marine's Toys for Tots Campaign.

    Big news this year is that we are now a 501 (3)(c) charitable foundation with the National Heritage Foundation as our BOD

    On Saturday, December 3rd, the Marines from Buckley Air Force Base will be at the Jeffco Event Center to receive our toy donations. Yes, this year we're ready for any weather----if its a nice day we can set up outside---if its not we can move inside where its warm!!!!!

    We will once again meet at 3 locations around the city and caravan over the Jeffco event center. This year we will again meet at Westminster Mall, and the Arapahoe and I-25 Home Depot. Since we're caravanning west the third meeting spot will be at the Chili's in North Aurora Mall off of I-225 and Alameda. Meeting time will be 10:30 this year with departure time scheduled for 11:00.

    Again this year, participants will receive commemorative dash plaques and tickets for the FREE Lunch and the FREE raffle to follow.

    So start your toy shopping early and put December 3, 2005 on your calendar. As we gear up we'll have a couple more meetings to organize volunteers. Don McDowell has again agreed to serve as Trail Boss coordinating caravan sites, but we can use some additional volunteers to help at each of the three sites.

    Ed Collins is serving as our promotions chair and likewise, volunteers to help get toy donations, prizes and monetary donations for things like lunch and T-shirts are always welcome. Christmas Caravan for Kids is now a non-profit foundation with the National Heritage Foundation so all donations are tax deductible and donation letters are available for those who need them.

    The past two years we have been the second largest one-day donation the Marines have received. We'd like to give #1 (which happens to be the Denver Bronco's Toys for Tots drive at one of their home games) some competition. Please plan to join us on the 3rd and give us a call if you'd like to volunteer to help or make a donation to the cause.

    If you'd like a copy of the flyer to post, please email us (
