The third annual Toys for Tots Christmas Breakfast takes place in Abbotsford on Friday, Nov. 27.

The event, benefitting the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau, runs from 6 to 9:30 a.m. at the Ramada Plaza and Conference Centre, 36035 North Parallel Rd.

A free buffet breakfast is provided to anyone who drops by with a cash or toy donation.

The event features kids’ activities and live entertainment.

For those who don’t have time to come in, a drive-thru will be set up in the parking lot for people to drop off their donations and enjoy a free coffee and pastry.

The Abbotsford Christmas Bureau, which operates as the Abbotsford Food Bank for most of the year, provides gifts and food hampers for those in need over the holiday season.

This year, the bureau expects to help more than 1,200 children.

Last year’s Toys for Tots event collected almost $14,000 in cash and more than 1,100 toys.
