book & toy Holiday drive

Thought we would try something a little different for this year's Christmas event at the store.
There has been an expressed need for toys & books for children in our community.

Could there be a better time of year to donate these kinds of items?
 I think not!

B&B will be acting as a drop off point for the donated items.

The biggest gap has been said to be toys & books for 0 months to 6 years of age. 
Please be sure they are in good condition.
Now, if you are like me & don't have children - No excuse. There are options!! :) 

Let's not forget some books for the youth parents, maybe some board games?
Maybe you have some friends that do have or have had babies & children that have outgrown some books & toys - extend the invite for them to donate & perhaps extend that even further & offer to help them get those items down to the store...

I know there are some teachers out there, would some of your students be interested in helping out?
Mention it to your co-workers & neighbors...

Take some action - spread the word via your Facebook, Twitter, email or the old school way & use your mouth. :)

If you are unable to donate PLEASE share the event on your wall, tell a co-worker or take a minute & invite some friends who would be able to help.

If you aren't from Edmonton, maybe check into a center taking donations in your city - 

Tis the season!! ;)

Thank you!
