Toys For Tots - Help Needed In Cape Area Effort
Posted by bbollmann on Mon, Dec 10, 2012, at 9:39 AM:

From the Marine Corps League:

I am going to need a considerable amount of help in the next 10 days. Toy request forms are coming in from the Div. of Social Services offices, and the need is great. I found out this past week that at least 2 of the 4 county Social Services offices will not help with distribution of toys due to staff/budget cutbacks. I have lined up alternative distribution sites, but we will need to contact the families by telephone of where and when to pick up toys.




My daughter is singing in the TSO Tribute. They will be at Pitters this Sat, and Perry Park Center on 12/21 and 12/22. Admission is $10, and $1 goes to Toys for Tots. A good time is guarenteed for all. Shows start at 7 pm. Be there, or Scrooge you!

Be sure to mark on the box "Not to be Returned to Store" and scratch out the bar code. Some lousy parents take the toys back to the store for beer and drug money.
