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.

    Call me Scrooge if you would like, but a suggestion might be to check with some of the recipients of our largess as taxpayers, and see if they might have some unopened toys to donate and time on their hands to help in the distribution.

    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.

    The knife wounds you speak of should be sufficiently cared for with the $168 per day being spent on them by our benevolent government.
