Toys for Tots 2021
Custer Sportsmen’s Club has a long history of being one of the top contributors in Whatcom County to the Annual Toys for Tots Drive.
This year Custer Sportsmen’s Club will hold an action match and donate all of the proceeds to Toys for Tots. Custer Sportsmen’s Club has earmarked $7500.00 to purchase toys and the proceeds of the October 31st match will add to that total.
Matt and Nicole Pridachuk have been instrumental in the drive for Custer, spending many hours searching for good buys in the months before the drive to enhance the number and quality of toys that are donated by Custer. We appreciate their help. If you would like to be involved we will need help in December moving the toys to the distribution center. That date will be announced in December.
This is your opportunity to come have some fun shooting and help give to our local community young folks. The following paragraph details the match be sure you have the proper safety clearance to participate in this match.
