we have them out now...

we have our donation boxes for the toy drive in place now...
this one is outside of the fire station so people can pull up at any time and drop things off...
we will go up every evening and empty it out...
;o)
the other 2 donation tubs are inside the City Hall and our VFW...

we headed to town on Saturday and picked up the items to put in the Christmas gift bags for the teenagers...
we buy things like shampoo, soap, deodorant, razors, tooth paste and tooth brushes...
then we add a few fun things in there...
each teenager gets a gift bag plus other things the parent(s) pick out...

we also grabbed a bunch of coloring books and crayons at Dollar Tree...

I did get to shop for me (us) a bit, too...
and stopped in at Goodwill...
found a few things, put it looked like it was picked over pretty good...
we did good on finding stuffed animals for the doggies...
they love them!

hope your weekend was a good one...
we were in the low 60s and sunny...
nice day to get across parking lots and such...
this next weekend is going to be much different...
40s and rain...
glad we got that part done in the nicer weather!

have good days!
;o)

It is wonderful that you are continuing to do this every year, Tete. Here they have some bins set up in the stores, too, that a person can buy an extra toy and drop it in the charity box for kids. xo Diana
