Final opp to support ABATE 2008 Toy Run, this Sunday 10/19!

Well this was a good week, because I learned something! In my previous post about the 2008 ABATE District 4 Toy Run, I said that the event was a benefit for the Toys for Tots Program. That’s actually incorrect. Here’s the real scoop, and an opportunity in case you missed the run this year:

Laura from ABATE District 4 tells me that although the event in the past has donated the toys to Toys for Tots, these days the group sorts and distrubutes the toys themselves for needy families throughout Polk, Dallas and Warren Counties. And that’s the opportunity – ABATE District 4 will meet this Sunday, October 19, at the Waveland Fairgrounds Cafe, 304 E. 30th in Des Moines, at 2 p.m. and will be able to collect toys at that time if you would still like to donate.  Thanks, Laura, for the corrected info!

    Thank you for clearing up the issue….I thought donations were for Toys for Tots too! As long as needy kids get the gifts it doesn’t matter to me.
    It was good seeing your family at the Toy Run, Janet! I’m sure it’s good for you to be out and about again too!!
