Bartell Drugs and Salvation Army host ‘Toy ‘N’ Joy’ drive at Lynnwood stores Nov.17-Dec. 14

services-preview-img-3Bartell Drugs is once again partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its 10th annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N’ Joy” drive Nov. 17 through Dec. 14.

The toy donations will be accepted at all Bartell Drugs locations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Toys will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.”

Bartells Lynnwood stores are located at 3625 148th St. SW and 17633 Highway 99.

The five-week drive in 2012 generated over 5,400 toy donations by Bartell’s customers—the estimated equivalent of $81,300 in toys to the Salvation Army.

Donation options include:

  • Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it.
  • Donate new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for children up to 14 years-of-age.


“The drive helps make the holiday season brighter for deserving children,” said George D. Bartell, Chairman and CEO of Seattle-based Bartell Drugs. “The generosity and support of our customers over the past nine years has been gratifying.”
