2nd Annual Toy Drive
Menards and United Way of Dickinson are partnering together again for our 2nd annual toy drive. Please stop by Menards, between now and December 14th, and donate a toy to help little ones in need around our community have a joyful Christmas. The toys obtained through the toy drive will be distributed to children in need through our area non-profit agencies and schools. We are incredibly grateful to Menards, who is helping us make these children’s Christmas joyful.
Pictured below is Kay. She was in tears as she hugged me. A couple of weeks ago her home was broken into. They lost all of their Christmas presents, jewelry, and even some photo albums. They were preparing not to have any gifts for their three children. With the help of the toy drive and Hess they now have gifts
Pictured below is Genea. Her husband recently got laid off so they’ve been struggling to make ends meet. They thought their kids wouldn’t have anything to open Christmas day. With the help of the toy drive and Hess they now have gifts
Pictured below is Tina. Her daughter fled a violent relationship in PA with nothing but the clothes on her and her children’s backs. She moved here to get help from her parents. Tina and her husband were able to buy the kids clothes, but that would mean the kids wouldn’t have anything to open Christmas day. With the help of the toy drive and Hess they now have gifts
