(Seguin) -- Monday will now mark the official arrival of the holiday season for Seguin Radio KWED. The radio station is hitting the streets early Monday morning to host its annual Holiday Food and Toy Drive. The annual effort, benefiting the Seguin Police Department Blue Santa Program and Christian Cupboard, will be held from 7 to 9 a.m. Monday outside its studios, located at 609 E. Court St. The drive was originally scheduled for Friday, but it was rescheduled for Monday due to the snow that fell Thursday night.
Donations needed are new and unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 0-12. New and used wrapping paper, scissors, tape and name tags are also needed. Non-perishable food items and toiletries are also encouraged to be donated for the Christian Cupboard.
A team of community volunteers and groups will be working alongside KWED/Seguin Daily News employees to collect donations. Groups include the Seguin Police Department, the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office, the Guadalupe County Constables and the Seguin Fire/EMS Department. Also invited are the Seguin ISD, the Navarro ISD, the Seguin City Council, the Guadalupe County Commissioners Court, the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce, the Seguin-Guadalupe County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Guadalupe Regional Medical Center.
Providing entertainment Monday morning will be members of the Seguin High School Matador Band. The group will perform from 7 to 8 a.m. Monday. The Navarro Jazz Band is slated to perform from 8 to 9 a.m. on Monday.
Seguin Radio KWED is also extending a thank you in advance to the many sponsors who each year have helped host the drive. They include Uncle Fry's Tacos and BBQ in Geronimo, Arlan's, Seguin Chevrolet, HEB, Court Street Coffee, Seguin Walmart and the Seguin Area Chamber of Commerce.
