Annual Takahashi Dojo Toy Drive

 

Every year, the students and friends of the Takahashi Karate Dojo collect new toys to donate to families in need in our local area. We have proudly engaged in this holiday tradition for nearly 20 years

Here’s how our Toy Drive works:

If you wish to make a donation, please purchase a new toy, gift wrap the package, and attach a tag describing the contents, as well as its appropriate age group and gender.

Bring your donation to the dojo on or before our annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 8th (12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.). A team of dojo students will then deliver the toys to local charities. Donations to our Toy Drive are voluntary. All contributions are greatly appreciated.

Let’s bring in a big haul for a good cause!

Happy Holidays!
