San Andreas, CA - You can help pack the patrol car and stuff the bus today in Calaveras County.
The CHP San Andreas Unit has joined forces with the Resource Connection of Calaveras County, and Calaveras Transit for the 16th annual "CHiPs for KIDS" Toy Drive.
Starting today, you can hand off toys and food to Officers who will be standing by to collect your new, unwrapped toys.
