Toys and gift cards for deserving kids, organized by William Hutchins. Every year Carlos' company, CHProductions, has done this special thing.

Courtesy Photo William “Carlos” Hutchins and his CH Productions usually has two affairs in December in which attendees bring toys for less fortunate families. Due to COVID-19, they were unable to have the affairs, so he held a toy drive drop off last week. He wants to send special thanks to everyone that contributed to the holiday toy drive.
