Bridal Boutique joins the KRCR Stuff The Bus toy drive
REDDING, Calif. - Marilyn Peters, the owner of Simply Elegant Bridal Boutique in Redding, said this is the business' first year participating in Stuff the Bus.
Stuff the Bus is KRCR's annual Christmas toy drive. Peters said she felt to compelled to be a part of the drive because she enjoys helping local children. She has been involved in fundraising for children with cancer in the past.
"I love helping this community," Peters said. She's lived in Redding since 1969, but her boutique has been in the Town & Country shopping center since 2014.
Peters said she hopes to fill the SUV she uses to transport bridal gowns with the donated toys. She plans to take the toys to the Stuff the Bus event on December 9 in the SUV.
Peters is offering a $25 credit to anyone who donates an unwrapped toy to the boutique. There is a red, Stuff the Bus bin at the boutique that is used to collect those donations.
She said the discount applies to any item, from veils to jewelry to dresses to shoes.
