Christmas Giving Update

Posted Thursday, December 16, 2010, at 2:29 PM

With delivery day just around the corner, the Cape Jaycees are busy loading up Santa's bags for the sleigh to send toys out to over 1150 children and a number of senior citizens in the area who need our support during Christmas. We have called out to the Cape Girardeau and surrounding community for support and I am humbled and overwhelmed by the response. WOW, we live in a WONDERFUL community, filled with generosity and compassion for others; truly the spirit of the holiday season is in the air. Toys have come flowing in, monetary donations to help fill where there is need, and many well wishes and thoughts. Notre Dame High School sent more than 800 toys our way and the River City Rodders have stocked our warehouse with bikes! In a much better place than where we were a week ago, there continues to be a need for gift cards for our Senior Citizens to purchase groceries, prescriptions, and daily living expenses. If you are still looking for a way to get involved in this annual project that delivers joy to so many, donations will continue to be accepted at our area drop-locations through Sunday, December 19 and monetary and financial support can be dropped off at the Southeast Missourian or mailed to Cape Jaycees PO Box 4, Cape Girardeau,MO. Thank you for all you have done to help in our efforts!

I am a teacher, a wife, and an avid "sports mom" to two wonderful boys. A native of Cape Girardeau; I currently teach at Cape Central Junior High School. As an educator, I see first hand the needs of families in our community during the holiday season. This is my sixth year as the Coordinator for the Jaycee Toybox project. I look forward to Toybox every year and have made it a tradition in my family as a means to give back during the holidays!
