This holiday season, Mama Says is teaming up with Jamie O’Hare, PreK teacher at East Montpelier Elementary school to collect toys and donations for families in Central Vermont by participating in Toy Joy! We are collecting toys and donations for children from birth to age 15. Central Vermont families in need can ‘shop’ for new toys during the Toy Joy event on December 16th. Toys for older children or monetary donations especially welcome! See below for the original post. Donations collected via paypal, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pickup for toys or baby gear.
If you have some new or gently used toys that could use a new home, please consider bringing them to school the week of December 12th, or dropping them off directly at the Bethany Church in Montpelier between 8am and 5pm on December 16th. Gift cards are also appreciated. Families from Washington County are welcome to pick out toys or equipment for infants through age 15 on Saturday, December 17th between 9am and 2pm at The Bethany Church. Each year over 1200 children participate in this worthwhile project. Questions??? Please feel free to contact Jamie O’Hare: email@example.com
