Toys for Tots Update

From one tiny counter full of toys to an overflowing Toys for Tots BOX:


I can't even tell you how excited I am about this! I didn't think our box would be even a quarter full with the toys we bought, but over the past couple days, folks from other departments have been showing up with armloads of additional toys, and now our box is overflowing! We have two additional bags of toys that didn't fit in the box! This is so awesome! I know it's tough (especially around here were we've been furloughed for a year now), but to see people come through at this special time of year really warms the cockles of my otherwise cold and saddened heart. I'm thrilled that so many kids in our community will be able to have a present to open on Christmas morning! And, if I haven't said it before, I'll say it now: I truly work with some of the most wonderful, amazing, and generous people in the world!
