It’s been a busy few weeks at this Christmas warehouse.
This great group of volunteers spent part of Thanksgiving Eve helping to sort Toys that we received from our County Wide Collection held earlier this week. We are also on Facebook so be sure to check out and “LIKE” our page.
The Project Gifts distribution is coming up on Saturday December 17th.
Applications are available on our Website at http://pgec.stmarysparotary.org/sign-up-forms/.
On Sunday Project gifts received a load of toys from the Fox Township American Legion Post 511 secured through the efforts of Jim Steinbiser and crew as they coordinated with several local organizations to collect toys for us.
