The restaurant is collecting toys for Children’s National Foundation, which works with children being treated at Children’s National hospitals.
This is the first year that Po Boy Jim is holding a Christmas toy drive, but co-owner Rebecca Antoine says she hopes to make the drive a yearly event.
Customers will receive a free traditional Po’ Boy sandwich for every new, unwrapped toy they bring starting at 11 a.m. Antoine says her staff is gearing up to make a large amount of the sandwiches for tomorrow’s drive.
“There’s just a whole lot of shrimp that needs to be peeled because we do it all from scratch,” she said. “But we’re ready and we’re excited about it.”
