EL MONTE, Calif. (PRWEB) December 21, 2020
On Sunday, Dec. 20, Hollowtips helped sponsor and volunteer at Packs Club’s First Annual Toys & Tacos Drive Thru Event in the city of El Monte. The festive and socially distant event drew more than 1,000 cars over the span of five hours and thousands of toys were distributed to approximately 2,600 kids (families were required to register for their time slot in advance).
“We were happy and honored to help sponsor this holiday event for the community during these challenging times,” said Hollowtips CEO Michael Tu. “Many of our staff members and supporters were born or raised in El Monte and around the San Gabriel Valley. Just seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces makes it worth it.”
In addition to receiving a goody bag with toys for each child, participants enjoyed free tacos and were greeted by Santa as they drove through a holiday-themed photo booth. With more than 80 volunteers to help set up and distribute toys and tacos, the event was well-organized and even DJ Carisma from the local POWER 106 radio station came by to support with music entertainment and helped pass out gifts. With the holidays around the corner, Packs Club, Hollowtips and all the event sponsors wanted to bring some hope and joy to the children of El Monte, a city where many of the event organizers grew up.
