Need Help.. trying to organize Xmas toy run

Our officers were brainstorming to do a toy run for the christmas season to help out the local children. We are going to try and organize not only jeeps, but other 4x4 vehicles. As a club with about 30 members, we can make a presence, but with different kinds of 4x4s we can really make a difference. I know that Harley riders have mean doing this for a long time now. I have emailed our local Harley club to find out how they organized it, but I would like any tips, information, opinios and whatever input I can to try and organize this. I am at a total blank because i have never been apart of any charity event like this, and many members haven't either. So we really need to know what to do at the very first steps of it to the last stages.
in the raw stages of it we want to accomplish

Collect toys for children.
So that will mean leaving collection boxes at various stores and business.
And say a weekend before the holidays we want to have a road ride to help promote it.

I know this is very vague, but this is where we are at right now. I dont know if it is too late to plan it, or if we have enough time, but we do realize we need to get this ball rolling now so that we don't drop it and not succeed.

thanks for your input

Re: Need Help.. trying to organize Xmas toy run

Our club has a toys for tots run each year. Many clubs from the area join in the run. To trail ride that day you just need to bring is a couple new toys with you. A representative from the Marines shows up to collect all the stuff. We get quite a few toys just from the 30 or so trucks that show up.

We also do a food drive run near Thanksgiving.

Re: Need Help.. trying to organize Xmas toy run

Hey Dan,
Do ya have a particular day in mind for this event? I would make sure I made it for this cause. The CJ is finally started, so there's the chance it could be in good enough shape to make the run up there. If not, I'll bring the Wrangler.

Re: Need Help.. trying to organize Xmas toy run

We havnt set a date yet. we are in teh real beginning planning stages, but i am trying to kick it up a notch so that this can be accomplished this year. That would be great for you to come down. The more the merrier. The kids need the help, and it will be good publicity for off road enthusists.
