Once again, Kaboodles is running its annual Vancouver-wide Toy Drive to support families who can’t afford gifts for their children. At every Kaboodles’ location, people can donate a gift to the Kaboodles Toy Drive, and all gifts collected will be delivered to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau who will pass them on to families in need.
