The Bakersfield California Highway Patrol is still collecting toys for kids, just in time for Christmas.

Tuesday on "First Look with Scott Cox," CHP public information officer Robert Rodriguez talked about the Dec. 12 CHiPs for Kids Toy Drive at The Bakersfield Californian.

He also said the department had passed out 4,100 "CHiPs" to kids in Kern County. Only kids with the "CHiPs" token will be able to pick out a gift on Dec. 23. Rodriguez said the kids had already been preselected.

"The incredible amount of support we continue to receive leaves me speechless," Rodriguez said.

If you still have not been able to donate a gift, Rodriguez said all local Walgreens are taking donations or you can take them to the CHP office, 4040 Buck Owens Blvd.
