Dear family and friends,
Thank you all for your generous support of our annual “Takeout for Toys” event. We hope that you enjoyed your rib plates and the time spent in our home connecting to each other – it is always a joy to join together for a good cause. This year was especially meaningful to us because of the tragedy in Connecticut. Our children should be living in joyful anticipation during the holidays, and thanks to all of you, we will make a difference this year for many of our local families in need.
We delivered a full truckload of toys to the Salvation Army on Saturday morning; Lieutenant Josh Morse and his family were most appreciative of the donations of toys and cash (some of our guests left cash and checks). They commented on the quality (and quantity) of our collective donation – thankfully, many of our toys were appropriate for older children who are often not supported as well as their younger counterparts. The money will help fill other needs of the 78 families who were not selected from the angel trees
