911 Gives Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive to Benefit Local Hospitals Is Underway
The 4th annual 911 Gives Hope for the Holidays toy drive is underway at the Eastside Wal-Mart in the front parking lot. As you can see by the photo on the left, we have a ways to go before that 53-foot semi-trailer is full, but it will be by 6pm on Sunday night. That photo is the first of the drive. The toys we collect get distributed to St. Mary’s, Deaconess, Methodist in Henderson, the Evansville Psychiatric Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House. The hospital is the last place any child wants to be at Christmas, which is our prime motivation to make sure they have a good Christmas in spite of their circumstances.
We are accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys and cash as well. We will use the cash at various times over the weekend to shop in Wal-Mart and you will know that every dollar you donated help fill up that trailer.
Each hospital has provided a needs list which you can print out by clicking here. Any help you can give us is greatly appreciated. You can also register to win a pair of Chris Young tickets for this Saturday night at the Centre. You can also register to win front trow tickets for Alan Jackson February 8th at the Ford Center. Let’s fill that trailer!!!
