The Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Joint Base Lewis McChord to help collect toys for military families in need. There are six drop-off locations throughout town where you can donate a new unwrapped toy. The Gig Harbor Chamber, Tickled Pink, and Subway all have boxes waiting to be filled!
