Toys for Tots

Saturday, December 12, 2015   Good evening!

I wanted to thank everyone for coming out to the Toys for Tots Train today. Through the generosity of the communities we visited, we were able to collect over 14,000 toys. Because of this, the Toys for Tots program will be able to provide holiday joy to many local children.

As I took nearly 300 photos today, the easiest way to share them with you was to upload them to Dropbox. There is a folder for each of the locations the train stopped, so it should be easier to find photos of your group. I apologize as some of the photos came out blurry, but hopefully there are photos of your group that are usable. You can download these photos and use them as you see fit. The images can be found at the following link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e0ohqbo32q1zdl0/AAB-CdtVt8suY_4-Svoyy-2ka?dl=0

If you have any difficulties accessing the photos on Dropbox, I have also uploaded them directly to a public album on my Facebook page. I have not yet finished captioning them, but hope to get that done this weekend. Feel free to share and tag the images: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10156209732820167.1073741876.544855166&type=1&l=0fa2c06d99

Additionally, images and updates on the collection will be posted to the following Facebook pages:

Again, thank you so much for your generosity. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and hope to see you again next year!
