(Waldorf, MD, December 2, 2022): The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs and Regency Furniture Stadium will host the Toys for Tots of Charles County distribution event for the fourth year on Friday, December 9th, and Saturday, December 10th, from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on both days. Since 2018, Blue Crabs have hosted an event that provides a happy holiday for those in need through the collection and distribution of toys donated by the community.

Volunteers from Kaiser Permanente will be on-site throughout the event to help sort and distribute toys. Additionally, Kaiser Permanente will collect toys at several of their regional medical centers.
“At Kaiser Permanente, investing in the communities we serve is core to our mission and part of our work to help more people live healthily and thrive,” said Cynthia Cifuentes, Vice President of Brand, Communications, and Community Engagement for Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States. “The Toys for Tots event extends our commitment to residents of Southern Maryland and supports families in need during the holidays. We are honored to partner with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs on this community event.”
Kaiser Permanente plans to open a new, state-of-the-art medical center near Waldorf, MD in 2025.
