To the editor:
As we wrap everything up for the 2012 Community Toys for Tots Campaign, I would like to extend a huge Thank You to everyone that helped to make this year’s campaign a great success.
For the 2012 Community Toys for Tots Campaign, we were able to provide toys for 925 children in 375 families.
There were 2806 toys donated by the community along with $25,000 collected for the 2012 Community Toys for Tots campaign. The campaign would not have been so successful without the help of the businesses that became drop sites allowing community members to come and drop off their donation(s). I would also like to thank all of the community members that opened up their hearts and their pocket books to donate a toy or money.
Either form of donation is greatly appreciated and goes a long way to providing a happier Christmas for a child. Lastly, but not least, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the volunteers from the communities that have donated their time to help make sure that the toys got to where they needed to be in a timely and organized manner. Again I cannot say Thank You enough to everyone who help make the campaign a success!
