Once again, we've decided to partner with Lutheran Community Services this holiday season. For many years, Lutheran Community Services has provided Christmas gift baskets to individuals and families in need. Local residents complete an application requesting a basket and indicate their household information, so the correct number of toys (and age-appropriate toys) are put in the basket. Many organizations "adopt" these families at Christmas, so they collect all the items for the baskets.
But what about those that don't get adopted, but still request a basket? That's where we step in! For the third year, we have agreed to serve as a collection site for new, unwrapped toys to complete the baskets. And we need your help to make this happen!
We are collecting new. unwrapped toys until December 9. We will gladly accept ANY toy, but we have been notified by Lutheran that there is a shortage of age appropriate gifts for 13-18 year olds. You may drop off your new, unwrapped toys/gifts to our office at 134 West Columbus Ave. during business hours- Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
We will deliver the toys to Lutheran Community Services in time to put the baskets together and deliver to the families for Christmas. Our staff will add toys to your donations and we will make one very large delivery!
This toy drive has become very dear to us because the toys go to local families- families in our own community- instead of going out of town. These are people you see in the grocery store or at the park. We believe very strongly in supporting our local community and this is just one more way we can help do that. The picture to the left shows a past donation made possible through YOUR generosity!
We will be posting regular updates and reminders about this program on our Facebook page- if you want to stay "in the know", please "LIKE" our page and share these posts to help spread the word. Our customers will also receive an email or two with important details, along with a reminder.
Thank YOU to all who can help us with this worthy cause! We love our community!
