Bartell Drugs to bring holiday cheer to local children in need


SEATTLE — Bartell Drugs is once again partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its 14th annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N Joy” drive, now through Dec. 20.

The toy donations will be accepted at 63 Bartell Drugs locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Toys will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.”  

Donation options include: 

  • Donate at the cash register at any Bartell Drugs location through Dec. 20.

  • Donate new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for children up to 14 years of age. 

“This community-wide drive helps make the holiday season brighter for deserving children in the neighborhoods we serve,” says Bartell Drugs President and CEO Brian Unmacht. “The generous response by our customers over the past several years has been gratifying.”

The five-week drive in 2015 generated over 219 boxes of toys by Bartells’ customers—the estimated equivalent of $64,000 in toys provided to the Salvation Army.
