The Haleyville Rotary Club Toys for Kids program last year was a great success. The Club had a lot of help gathering toys and distributing them to the needy families. Many thanks to all the businesses, churches, and individuals who gave so generously of their time and money to help those less fortunate. The Rotary Club was able to give toys to over 300 children in our local area helping families have a Merry Christmas.
The tradition continues. Please consider making a difference in a child’s life by making a donation. Sponsoring a child is just forty dollars ($40). You can also purchase one large toy and two smaller toys for the child you have selected. You can pick up a star with the child’s age and sex listed at Lakeland Community Hospital (see Whitney Hunsinger or Megan Welborn). This is a good idea if you have children so they can be involved in helping other children less fortunate and teach them the true meaning of Christmas.
Monetary donations and any new toy for this year’s program would be greatly appreciated. You can bring your donations to Alabama Power Office, First National, Trader’s and Farmers (3 locations) and Lakeland Community Hospital Emergency Department. You may also mail a check to Lakeland Community Hospital, P.O. Box 780, Haleyville, AL 35565 ATTN: Toys for Kids. Please make all checks payable to Haleyville Rotary Club Toys for Kids.
Applications for the toys will be accepted now through November 18 at the Alabama Power Company Haleyville Office, Trader’s and Farmers Bank (3 locations), and First National Bank. Lakeland Community Hospital will accept applications 24 hours, 7 days per week in the Emergency Department.
Qualifications for applications:
