Many Romans were surprised to learn that K-Mart was closing their store on Turner McCall Blvd. What people didn’t realize was this “Store Closing” sale presented a very advantageous purchasing opportunity to the Exchange sponsored Toys For Tots campaign.
Retiring Director Hal Gosnell and new Director Marti Robles were two of the first in the store to find some special toys at special prices for this years distribution in December.
And find they did because the pair filled up numerous buggies and purchased 162 Lego sets for $3,329.25. These sets were targeted at the ages 7-9 group which is always in need of extra toys. The purchase money was carried over from last year’s campaign for just such a purpose.
Toys For Tots operates 12-months a year and the buyers are always on the lookout for special sales, inventory reductions, and donations that are sorted into the inventory and stored for inclusion in the distribution.
Anytime you see a good toy at a great price, please consider purchasing it and donating it to Toys For Tots. You don’t have to wait for December.
The Hospitality House operates a “previously worn” clothing outlet and if you donate your old clothes to themand tell them to credit the account of the FRC, families can than secure clothing needs using that credit.
The process is simple:
Just another easy way you can donate to child abuse prevention.
