2020 Toy Drive In The Land Of Covid


Combined Effort For The Same Cause – It’s About The Kids!

Pat G. asked for some help in planning this year’s Toy Drive. Like everything else we are limited as to what and how we do things. Pat & I put our heads together and the simple answer was go for money not donations of goods or toys with all the inherent restrictions.

Got together with our friends at Big A and Riebes and their generosity became evident again. Each will match donations to the drive to $2,000!

The Roamin Angels Board joined the Club in and the Marines’ “Toys for Tots” program facing the same restrictions and problems have teamed with us to do the same. It’s all good.

So….Folks a $1 donation means that between the four organizations that instantly turns into $5!  Encourage $2K in donations…that’s $10K!]

Pat will be organizing the help we need to pull this off. Everything will be covid safe. Gary B. has signed up some locations that will also support us  and who knows what else?

The families and kids who the Salvation Army supports look like they will be having a Merry Christmas despite these hard times.

See Pat’s input and join in!!!! The ad you see (page 3) will run in the Union thanks to Big A.
