The Marine Toys for Tots Program collects new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. Mike Harris is one of the coordinators for the largest Toys for Tots events in San Diego. In the past three years, Mr. Harris has partnered with the El Cajon Harley Owners Group, the San Diego Jeep Club, and the Del Mar Racetrack, raising well over $43,000 and collecting over 6000 toys.

This year’s event takes place Saturday, November 22nd at the Del Mar racetrack, with three groups riding or driving in: the Adventure Bike riders will be leading a group from the Ride Now SoCal motorcycles in Vista, the San Diego Jeep Club will be leaving from Fiesta Island, and the El Cajon Harley Owners group will be leaving from El Cajon Harley Davidson. Groups will stagger their arrival at the track due to COVID restrictions. Toys and donations will be collected from 10am to 3pm.
