Toys For Tots 2017

As most of you know, I’m in charge of making and getting Woodcrafters members making “Toys For Tots” for the Marine Corps.  Like myself, some of you have also contributed to the “Children’s Network” of which Sam Densler is in charge.  I am writing this to solicit members’ help in making toys again this year for the “Toys For Tots” Program.  Last year members contributed over 90 various toys.  I hope this year we can do even more.

If you would like to contribute to this year’s effort, please send me an email and also let me know if you need specific types of wood.  I will purchase the wood (last year the Board provided $200.00 to purchase the various types of wood that we needed) and have it in the Shop ready for use.  When the toys are completed, I will box up the toys and have them stored for delivery to the Corps in November.  They really appreciated the toys that were provided last year and as you can imagine, they still needed more for the children in this area.  It may seem early to start for delivery in November, but trust me, we were down to the last days in our delivery last year.

Thank you for your past and future help.  It is appreciated.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Harry L. Pell, Board member
