When & Where
Here at Sunny King Honda, we can’t wait for the holidays. According to the Anniston/Calhoun County Facebook Page, the Christmas Parade will be held on December 12 in Downtown Anniston. Headed down Noble Street at 3 pm, the parade will feature a range of floats, school bands, and even Santa Claus himself.
You can also visit Santa’s Holiday Village from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 12. Held on the corner of 10th and Noble street, the village will have live music, a holiday café, arts and crafts, local artists, and local vendors. There will also be a visit from Santa at the Holiday Village.
The Holiday Village and Parade are free to the public. You can donate a non-perishable food item when you visit with Santa, as it will go to local food banks that are in need this holiday season. Be sure to plan your own winter activities today.
Sunny King Honda is proud to be a donation site for Toys for Tots this year! Now through December 7th, you can donate a new, unwrapped toy at our dealership for Toys for Tots.
The Toys for Tots program is a long standing tradition of the Holiday season. Organized by the US Marine Corps, Toys for Tots collects toys for underprivileged children so they can experience the joy of Christmas. The toys give children who are less fortunate a message of hope, which the program hopes will assist them in becoming “responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.”
The Marines have been collecting toys since 1947, and the Toys for Tots program became an official mission of the Marine Corps Reserves in 1995. Donations take place in over 700 communities around the country throughout October, November and December. Each community has a designated coordinator who is responsible for planning, organizing and conducting the campaign. Once the toys have been collected, they are then sorted by age and gender. At Christmas, the toys are then distributed to children of the community who are less fortunate.
Want to get involved? Bring your Toys for Tots donations to Sunny King Honda now through December 7th and get $5 off an oil change.
