Christmas toy drive for local families

Help our friends at the Brashear Association to provide quality Christmas gifts for local children!

Pick-up gift tags:  Sunday, December 4
Drop-off unwrapped toys:  Saturday, December 10 or Sunday, December 11 

Each gift tag has the gender and age of the child that you will shop for.  Not sure what to buy?  Consider spending $15-$25 on your child.  In general:  Books, Puzzles and Games are a great gift for any age/gender! Most toys will have an age range listed on them, and that’s a good guide to use.
