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!! ;)
We can do no great things; only small things with great love.
