Joy Of Sharing
CBS 3 and The CW Philly 57 launched the stations’ 25th annual Joy of Sharing toy campaign benefiting children in need this holiday season. In honor of the 25th anniversary, the stations kicked off this year’s campaign with “25 days of sharing.”

The Joy of Sharing campaign collections began Tuesday, November 26th through Friday, December 20th.
Eyewitness News Anchors Chris May and Jessica Dean are requesting new, unwrapped toys for local children on behalf of the Salvation Army through through Friday, December 20th — when the stations wrap up the season with an all-day drive through drop-off.
All five of the CBS RADIO stations in the market – KYW Newsradio 1060, 98.1 WOGL, SportsRadio 94 WIP, CBS Sports Radio 610 and Talk Radio 1210 WPHT – will also join in the holiday tradition by collecting toys at their studios, participating in campaign events and promoting the drive on air.
Toys will also be collected at numerous locations throughout the Delaware Valley including a trio of tree lighting ceremonies: The Moorestown Tree Lighting Ceremony in New Jersey, Monday, December 2nd, the Rittenhouse Square Tree Lighting Ceremony in Philadelphia, Tuesday, December 3rd and the lighting ceremony at Philadelphia’s LOVE Park on Wednesday, December 4th. Anyone stopping by the CBS 3 2013 Holiday Lights neighborhood tour can also bring along a toy.
Additionally, the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia will present Teatime in Wonderland where families are encouraged to bring a toy to benefit the initiative. The teas will be held every Saturday beginning November 30th in the elegant Swann Lounge. Additional information can be obtained by calling: 215-977-JOYS.
