John F. Kennedy once said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
With Thanksgiving a mere week away, we are encouraged to count our blessings and to be grateful for the lives we have been given.
It is easy to simply verbalize your thanks and appreciation and move on to the turkey, football, and napping that is such a traditional part of the holiday. But, actions speak louder than words.
Demonstrate your thanksgiving by donating a new, unwrapped toy to Toys for Tots so that it may be given as a Christmas gift to a less fortunate child in your very own community.
Tom Naquin is one of over 700 local Toys for Tots drop-off locations.
The Toys for Tots Program was founded by the United States Marine Corps Reserve with the intention to unite local communities in the creation of hope and joy for their less fortunate children through a simple Christmas toy.
Possible donation ideas may include sporting equipment, books, board games, remote control cars, skateboards, and hand-held electronics.
