Posted Saturday, November 5, 2011, at 3:29 PM

Toy Drives, money collections, "casual" dress days for dollars, wish trees, and raffles...there have been many, many ways that area schools and businesses have gotten involved in the efforts of the Jaycee Christmas Projects, the Toybox and Christmas for the Elderly. However, many continue to lack the facts that provide the backbone for our efforts. Here they are...in one fact sheet, hope this clarifies any confusion in the community.

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!
