This year Mac’s Toy Fund will serve nearly 4,500 Raleigh County children, providing them with toys, coats, gloves, hats, bikes and more. To ensure the success of the event, to be held Dec. 15, Mac’s needs your help.
If you would like to donate a bike and need someone to pick it up, please call 304-252-3874, or e-mail bsa.troop.103.
email@example.com. It need not be in perfect condition; Boy Scouts of Troops 103 and 3 will make repairs.
Used toys and dolls should be dropped off at BJW Printing and Office Supplies, 3100 Robert C. Byrd Drive, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
New or gently used coats can be dropped off at Family Coin Laundry on Robert C. Byrd Drive. Donation boxes will soon be available at several area locations. A list will be provided this weekend in this same space.
