It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and in an effort to bring a little holiday magic to Maricopa kids and teens, Planet Fitness and the Boys & Girls Club of the Casa Grande Valley is making it their mission to give the gift of joy this holiday season by partnering together to host their annual Holiday Toy Drive.

To donate, community members are invited to visit Planet Fitness in Maricopa (20595 N. John Wayne Parkway, Suite 400) to drop off any unwrapped toys for Club Kids ranging from ages 5 to 18 years old.
