Join us for the 5th Annual Trouts Holiday Toy Drive!

Ivan Orsic / Nov 14, 2020

Following our #optoutside River Cleanup on Black Friday, Trouts will be reopening our doors Saturday, November 27th for the annual Small Business Saturday. For the 5th straight year, we're carrying the ethos and mission of "giving" from our #optoutside River Cleanup into the weekend. Like the #OptOutside River Cleanup, this year's Toy Drive will look a little different. We want to get you all involved. So, you can participate in-store or you can make a donation online to win a very Trouts prize...but more on that later.

For the entire Holiday weekend, we'll be hosting our Fourth Annual Trouts Holiday Toy Drive both at Trouts Denver and Online. After last year's haul of donations, we want to pass on every bit of holiday cheer that we can muster.

As we have in the past, we're teaming up with Warren Village of Denver to host the Trouts Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the children of Warren Village. What is Warren Village you might ask? Well simple, "Warren Village helps low-income single-parent families achieve personal and economic self-sufficiency—and to sustain it by being dedicated to improving their lives and creating a better future for their children and themselves". They are truly an amazing organization, and all of us at Trouts are incredibly excited to be able to help these children enjoy an amazing upcoming Holiday Season. Here are the details:

What: Toy Drive to benefit the children of Warren Village in Denver
When: Saturday & Sunday - November 28th & 29th - OPEN to CLOSE
Where: Trouts Denver
Details: This is a family-oriented event, so please feel free to bring the whole family!
For the Kids: every child in attendance get's one pull from the Trouts Grab Bag!

So let's get into the details of the Trouts Holiday Toy Drive! In true Trouts fashion, we want to give you a little extra motivation to give back this holiday season. That's why we'll be offering you a "starring" role in a 2021 episode of Five Flies with our very own Trouts Denver Head Guide Scott Dickson and Tanner Smith along the South Platte near Deckers!

This is a prize that would make anyone's day. So how does one get entered to win? Easy, bring a NEW toy donation* by our Trouts Denver location on November 28th or 29th or donate $10 or more to the Warren Village through our online store to be entered in the drawing (DONATE HERE). But wait, it gets better. For every $50 you spend you'll get one additional entry into the drawing. We'll let you do the math here, but if there's been something that you or a friend/loved one/family member has been wanting, this may be an ideal time to pick it up (wink, wink). The following are toys that the kids of Warren Village have on their Holiday wish lists:

  • Action Figures
  • Board Games
  • Video Games
  • Dress Up
  • Dolls
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Infant Toys
  • Educational Games
  • Instruments
  • Sporting Gear
  • Toddler Toys
  • Building Sets
  • Movies
  • Books
  • Electronics
  • Baby Gear

We do need to reiterate that all toy donations must be in NEW condition, otherwise, they will not be accepted by Warren Village.

We hope that all of our customers enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday, and we look forward to seeing what you pick up during our Virtual #OptOutside River Cleanup, and hopefully through the 4th Annual Trouts Holiday Toy Drive on the weekend of Small Business Saturday. We see all of our customers and clients as part of the Trouts Family, and we are looking forward to seeing all of you around Trouts Denver and Trouts Frisco this Holiday Season!

*all toy donations must be in brand new condition with packaging. Trouts Fly Fishing reserves the right to deny any donation that we feel does not meet the criteria of donations as specified by Warren Village.
