Precious CarGo - The Gonzalez Family Toy Drive
On Saturday, Dec. 14, Carlos Gonzalez and his family will host the Precious CarGo Toy Drive at Coors Field and the Colorado Springs Dugout Store, giving fans the opportunity to receive a CarGo autograph in exchange for the donation of a toy.
With the motivation to make a difference and a soft-spot for helping children in need, CarGo and his family, wife Indonesia and son Santiago, will be accepting new toys for children ages up to 14 and donating to a number of local organizations who will put them to good use.
The first part of the toy drive will take place at Coors Field's Diamond Dry Goods Store from 9-11 a.m. and the first 300 fans are guaranteed a CarGo autograph. Fans will be allowed one autograph per toy donation. Line formation begins at 8 a.m. and free parking is available in the RTD Lot at Blake St. and Park Ave.
After part one of the Precious CarGo Toy Drive at Coors Field, the Gonzalez family will head south to the new Colorado Springs Dugout Store location (5230 N Nevada Ave., Ste. #140) for an additional autograph opportunity and toy donation collection for Southern Colorado fans from 1-2 p.m. The first 150 fans at the Colorado Springs Dugout Store will be guaranteed an autograph.
CarGo and his family are excited to get involved and help out in the community during the holidays.
"It's a beginning," Gonzalez recently told MLB.com. "I want to provide motivation to keep kids on the right path. I want to get involved in this community and do it right I want to help kids reach their dreams."
