Baxter Auto and its employees will participate in the local toy drive: Toys for Tots. This drive helps bring new toys as holiday gifts for less fortunate children in the community.

That year 5,000 toys were collected and distributed to needy children around the LA area. Since then, the program helps families nationwide. Last year more than 19,000 children received toys from the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program.
