Third Annual Toys for Tots and Gifts For Seniors Event
Advanced Career Institute has once again collaborated with the National Guard, AARP, and the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program for our third annual community service event for the holidays.

We are collecting new unwrapped toys for children. In addition, we will be collecting basic need gifts for less fortunate senior citizens. We are requesting items such as new blankets, slippers, socks, basic need items, etc. which will be distributed this holiday season.
All gifts collected will be distributed in our local area only and not sent to other areas. All individuals requesting gifts or know of a child or senior citizen in need can call (559) 651-1978 for more information.
