Toys For Tots!

Toys For Tots Saturday is here!  On Saturday mornings throughout the year, we all gather to express our common passion for automobiles.  Once in a while, we all gather for a special cause.  The holidays are right around the corner.  It’s time to make a difference.

 

Imagine the positive impact you can have for the holiday season of a disadvantaged child in Baltimore County.  Think back to your childhood when you received that gift that you remember to this day.  Remember the unfiltered joy.  Maybe your own children are now experiencing those moments.  Remember those smiles.  May these memories be carried forward by the entire family for decades.  Set new memories in motion.  The time is now!

 

According to toysfortots.org, the primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

 

On my gift purchase tour, I knew about the timeless gifts but I wasn’t connected to the trendy gifts.  Until this month, I had never heard of Olaf from the movie ‘Frozen’ but I took the advice of our community Facebook page to seek him out.  This advice was a curse and a blessing.  Olaf wasn’t on the shelves in the first 2 retail locations I visited. When he was found and purchased, I recognized – in the checkout line, in the parking lot and later during the sponsor tour - that Olaf was a true celebrity.  If you’re not sure what to buy, you can stick with the classics but also, the advice on the trends will be easy to find.  Whatever your choice – classic or trendy, big or small, one or many – all of your contributions are mightily appreciated!

 

For all of the information you’ll need for this Saturday’s Special Gathering, you can find it on page 8.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Rich “Will” Williams via horsepowering@gmail.com.  We all hope to see you there!
