Humboldt Realtors Association distributes "Toys for Kids."

EUREKA – Several thousand needy children will be getting toys this year thanks to the Toys for Kids Program sponsored by Humboldt Association of Realtors.

It was started by Coldwell Banker Cutten Realty back in 1991. That year, they distributed 161 toys to young people in the area. In 2000, Humboldt Association of Realtors was asked to take over the program. It has grown substantially since.

This year 3,500 kids in Humboldt County will receive toys for Christmas. Additional fundraising efforts have included red collection barrels, a bowling tournament and a “quarter craze.”
