We appreciate the generosity of our friends at Green Toys for this wonderful offer and for their kindred spirit of community support
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Cole Hardware, a San Francisco based hardware and garden center company, together with Green Toys is sponsoring a toy drive for Arriba Juntos, a San Francisco-based community organization. For every Green Toy purchased at any of the four Cole Hardware locations from November 21st to December 22nd, the customer may select a Green Toy valued up to $15 to donate to the toy drive.
All toys are made of recycled plastic milk jugs. The toys will be given out to children in the community at Arriba Juntos’ La Posada celebration.
La Posada is a colorful tradition celebrated in Mexico every evening from Dec. 16th to December 24th, and also celebrated by many staff members of Cole Hardware Mission Street store.
Each night of the celebration, a party is held in a neighborhood home with plenty to eat and drink. At dusk, guests gather outside the house and follow a procession with a child dressed as an angel leading the way for children, adults, and musicians alike, as they sing and carry candles. Posada means “shelter” in Spanish, and when the group reaches its destination, half stay outside to ask those inside for refuge. The happy end to each Posada is a piñata, traditionally made in the shape of a star to recall the star of Bethlehem, which guided the three kings.
“We appreciate the generosity of our friends at Green Toys for this wonderful offer and for their kindred spirit of community support,” said Robin Miller, Cole Hardware General Manager.
