Thank You For Making Our 2020 Toy Drive Such A Huge Success
  

Ok, let’s wrap this up!  (Although it never ends does it?  There’s still so many in need so please get out there and lend a hand where and when you can).

Two weeks ago we held our 4th annual toy drive (Tailgating For Toys) after barreling  through so many hurdles in our way including losing our regular location.  After a couple more roadblocks we finally found our spot at Walmart in Whitinsville… thanks Walmart!  A storm on the first day could have put a damper on the weekend but we just added a day to the collection.  And then there’s 2020 being all 2020-y… but we kept it safe and clean for those who participated.  But we pressed on and delivered our yearly promise to Toys for Kids and Teens.

Now, before this starts to sound like a self-serving pat on the back, let me stress that this would not have happened without YOU.  All the praise and pride is directed to you, our partners and friends in our local community.  As a comparison, last year we raised about $6,000 from Shopping Spree Sponsors.  This year we collected an unbelievable $16,000 dollars from people who saw the need for charity this year more than any other.  That bought us a lot of toys and kept us very busy with shopping sprees throughout the collection.  You can see the videos on our Facebook page.  In the end we were able to fill a 16’ Container on Wheels (COW) with over 6,000 toys!

During the week after the collection we continued to collect cash as we waited on a few more Shopping Spree checks. Then we learned that our local Catholic Charities chapter was in desperate need of toys after their regular connection failed to come through for them.  So with about $2000 in hand we finished our Shopping Sprees and donated the remainder of our collection to the organization.  Holiday shopping tip… $1,100 goes a long way at Five and Under!

There are so many people to thank this year.  Many new friends stepping up, many friends who have been there from the start.   We love you and thank you all for your generosity and kindness.   I’m going to do my best to hit everyone here.  Best of luck to me!
