To the Valley News:
It's that time of the year again for community members to take a little time out of their schedule and pocket to assist in making a joyous holiday season for families less fortunate. As this concern arises each year, we believe the need will be greater in our community due to the devastation and loss endured by Tropical Storm Irene.
The Fifth Annual Holiday Toy Drive (Sponsored by M&M Diner) has begun and toys/electronics for child/youth/girl/boy are in great need. Also in need are the following items for meal baskets: turkey/potatoes/canned vegetables and stuffing/dinner rolls/pies.
If you wish to donate to the toy drive and/or toward a holiday meal basket, please contact Cindi Murphy at: firstname.lastname@example.org or Kelly Murphy at email@example.com. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated as well.
Families in need are strongly encouraged to obtain a confidential application at M&M Diner in Au Sable Forks and returned no later than Dec. 15. The Annual Toy Drive will only assist the following communities: Au Sable Forks, Jay, Upper Jay and Black Brook.
Your continued support is needed and greatly appreciated.
