For the 18th consecutive year, race fans and community members can help spread some much-needed holiday spirit to Sonoma Valley kids by donating toys to Sonoma Raceway’s High-Powered Toy Drive.

All toys collected during the toy drive, which runs through Wednesday, Dec. 16, will be distributed to Sonoma Valley youth-serving organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club of Sonoma Valley as well as the Sonoma Valley Mentoring Alliance. New, unwrapped gifts and gift cards for newborns to 12 year olds are needed.

For the past 17 years, Sonoma Raceway has distributed collected toys at its annual Race to the Holiday Christmas Party. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the party has been cancelled for 2020 and toys will go directly to youth-serving non-profit organizations in Sonoma Valley.

Toys are accepted at the following Sonoma locations until Dec. 16:

•     Sonoma Raceway, 29355 Arnold Dr., Sonoma, 800-870-RACE (7223), Mon.-Fri., 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
