fewer than 26 days left before the Saturday, 12-22-2012 World Missions Toy Drive GiveAway Rally

See this 11/29/2012 message from Dr. joAnn Perkins of Bloomingdale's World Missions Extension Center, 1st & Randolph Place NW, northwest corner:

Hello everyone,

Just checking in to say with less than 26 days left before the Saturday, December 22nd Toy Drive  Give Away Rally, we want to remind everyone that with so many kids needing toys this year, we need your help in obtaining toys for all of the kids who will be at the rally.

These pictures reflect the large number of kids who received gifts last year, and with your help, we look forward to each child receiving a gift this year as well. We want to thank all of you who have contacted us about hosting a  decorated red toy box at your job site, or at your store, or restaurant which can be used to collect toys.  Last year several of the businesses in Bloomingdale contributed toys to the rally by allowing their customers to drop off toys at their establishments.

Should you, your friends or small group like to contribute to the toy drive by collecting toys for the kids, we ask that the toys be new  and wrapped with the age and sex of the child be specified on the gift. Please note that our toy drive ends on Friday, December 21st and all  donations and toys can be turned in by Friday, December 21st between the hours of 10:00am and 7:00pm)  Donations will be received at our site during these hours and World Missions EXTENSION Center is located at 1720 Frist St. NW (on the corner of First and Randolph Place NW. Or if you and your family would like to adopt a child by dropping off your family gift for a child, you can do so by coming by our office as well.  And of course we would love to have you, your family and friends volunteer at the rally as well. 

Ok, want to thank you in advance for helping us make Christmas special for the kids,
Dr. J. Perkins, Rally Coordinator
