IEX Toy Drive – 2022
“To give Rudolph a break, Santa and his elves will once again fly their helicopter to deliver gifts”
We are excited to announce our 2nd Annual Toy Drive in partnership with the City of Avalon & Avalon Sheriff Station. The campaign continues the new tradition of delivering toys and joy for Avalon children in need during the holiday season.
IEX Helicopters, will be collecting gift donations at its Queen Mary Terminal in Long Beach until 15th December 2022.
On 16th December 2022, Santa with assistance from two of his elves will fly a helicopter loaded with donated gifts to Avalon where he will be met by deputies from the Avalon Sheriff Station who will escort him and the gifts to City Hall where they will be distributed to local children.
Santa has chosen to fly his helicopter in order to give Rudolph and the other reindeer a well-deserved break so they are fresh and ready for Christmas Eve.
“After our 2021 Toy Drive, there was no debate about turning this initiative into an annual tradition. It was heartwarming to see how much joy it brought to the younger residents of Avalon. We are excited to continue this program and make the holiday season a little more memorable for islander families who depend on tourism – which is minimal during the winter season” said Ben Villalobos, VP of Business Development at IEX Helicopters.
We invite you to join us in donating Christmas presents to Avalon children in need, and kindly ask you to leave your unwrapped gifts at our Queen Mary Terminal.
Please have your gifts delivered to:
