Our toy making operation was published in the newspaper again.

It seems that the article was published in Delaware Wave on December 17, 2008, Delaware Coast Press in December 18, 2008 and in the Daily Times in December 23, 2008

It is truly an honor to be a part of this group of dedicated workers who meet each Wed of the year to make toys for kids. They are distributed to different charities in the area for their distribution to the children of their client families.

We make about 1200 – 1300 toys a year. I went to our storeroom today and it is basically empty maybe 20 to 30 toys are left and there were over 1300 toys this year that were created for distribution, plus some leftovers from last year..

Karson, this is a great program you all do – it’s awesome to see people give their time and talents to a worthy cause and I’m sure the kids will love these.

The fact that your group works at it all year and not just at the Christmas rush, shows your true spirt and dedication.

Lee some of the members make items at home and then bring them in to give away. But the good time that we have as a group is hard to replace.
