Off Lease Only is sponsoring the Palm Springs Police “Stuff a Cruiser” holiday toy drive, scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 12th, at the Walmart Supercenter, at 2675 NW 10th Ave. North.

In the spirit of the season, police will be collecting new, unwrapped toys to be distributed to those in need.OffLeaseOnly LOGO

“The aim is to target local families in need,” said Palm Springs Police Officer Frank Castro, who works in the Community Policing division of the Palm Springs Police Department. “Toy drives like Toys for Tots distribute toys on a national basis. We want to get our community involved to help collect toys for local families in need. We want to target the families here in our own backyard.”

The Palm Springs Police Department is partnering with Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches to distribute the toys and money collected.

Adopt-A-Family is a Lake Worth-based not-for-profit agency whose purpose is to help families in crisis by providing access to all-encompassing services.  The organization, founded in 1983, believes a family’s basic needs must be met before change can occur within the family or individual. The organization provides housing, rent assistance and support services to needy families.

Those who bring a new, unwrapped toy, or contribute $5 are eligible for a free photo with Santa!

It looks to be a great time to bring the kids and enjoy an afternoon of family fun!

“Off Lease Only supports the annual ‘Stuff A Cruiser’ Toy Drive because we love to get involved in our local community,” said Off Lease Only owner Mark Fischer. “No child should go without a new toy during the holidays which is why we gladly throw our support behind this wonderful initiative in hopes of making a small difference!”

Off Lease Only is building a huge, new used car dealership at 1200 S. Congress Avenue in Palm Springs because its current dealership in Lake Worth is in need of more space for our expanded inventory! When the new dealership is completed in about a year, it will be the jewel of the OffLeaseOnly cluster!

Off Lease Only will have a variety of cool used cars on display at the event. Stop by and check them out. Off Lease Only is the Nation’s Used Car Destination! With more than 4,000 quality used cars available, it’s never been a better time to buy a used car!

Castro said many residents who live in the area are unaware of the great need so many local families experience.

“Off Lease Only is a great supporter. Other businesses that support the cause are also invited to the event,” Castro said. “Some people just don’t know (about the local need).”

The afternoon will include a variety of kid-friendly activities such as a bounce house, an obstacle course, Home Depot holiday craft tables, food trucks and more. There will also be educational displays to stir interest.

Concerned about kids and car safety?

The Florida Highway Patrol will have their “rollover” simulator on hand to demonstrate what can happen when someone isn’t wearing a seat belt in a rollover crash. Kids can examine crash test dummies and ask questions after watching the demonstration.

The endeavor’s aim is to highlight the importance of wearing seat belts.

Safekids of Palm Beach County, in collaboration with the Traffic Unit, will also be in attendance to demonstrate the correct way to install a child safety seat and to assist anyone who needs help doing so.

A variety of local business will be participating in the event, with booths arranged around the Walmart parking lot.
