Toys For Tots Train
The Rome Exchange Club, as the local sponsor for Toys for Tots, continues with our effort to provide a toy for every needy child this Christmas.  This week our attention turns to registering all the children that we will need to serve.  Registration continues all this week,  Monday – Friday at the Wilder Center, First United Methodist Church.  Buzz has done a great job at organizing this. 

 

  
Exchangites Bob Evans and Wayne Rush work as Interviewers to take down information about children who need toys for Christmas.

After this week,  focus will turn to purchasing, picking up the toys from the various collection boxes, and organizing them in the Community Bldg at the Fair Grounds for distribution.  Toys for Tots Chair Linda Hatcher says she can use  volunteers from Dec 3-Dec 14, sorting and packing toys, also putting in batteries.  No sign up necessary, just show up, generally each morning.  If you have questions,  contact  Linda  at   hatcher.linda@yahoo.com.
