Each year the California Highway Patrol (CHP) participates in the “CHiP’s for Kids” toy drive. CHiP’s for Kids started from humble beginnings over 23 years ago in Los Angeles. Back then, a small group of California Highway Patrol officers banded together and decided to help the less fortunate children living in the communities they served.This popular program has grown tremendously, and now nearly every CHP office in the state participates in helping children in their communities through this program. The Temecula CHP area has successfully participated in this program for the last decade. With the help of compassionate supporters in the communities we serve, our area squad has been able to distribute toys to hundreds of less fortunate children in Southwest Riverside County.
