Christmas is all about giving. You can join in the giving by helping Mac’s Toy Fund.
The fund serves children up to 12 years old who receive services from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. There are a number of ways you can help give these kids a happier Christmas.
At the annual toy distribution Mac’s gives each child served a new toy, a used toy, coat hat and gloves, and fruit. A number will also receive a bike and a helmet. The fund depends on you help to make these Christmas dreams come true.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org. The bike need not be in perfect condition; Boy Scouts of Troops 103 and 3 will make repairs.
There is a great need for used toys and dolls which 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.
Shady Spring High School cheerleaders are conducting a used coat drive. The teens have decorated large boxes that will be placed in businesses in Beckley, Beaver and Shady in which you can place donated coats.
New and used coats are being accepted for Mac’s Toy Fund at Chateaux Interiors in Beckley; Kroger at Beaver, Harper Road and Beckley Crossing; CVS in Beaver; Big Lots in Beckley; Chick-fil-A at Beckley Galleria; Family Coin Laundry; The Register-Herald; Walgreens in Beaver; Raleigh General Hospital; Chili’s in Beckley and all Shady Spring schools.
