Today is the last day that donations of used toys will be taken for this year’s Mac’s Toy Fund distribution party, which will be Saturday morning at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.
If you have used toys in good working order, please consider donating them to Mac’s. They can be dropped off at BJW Printing and Office Supplies, 3100 Robert C. Byrd Drive, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.
Monetary donations are needed to pay for other expenses including new toys, materials for handcrafted wooden toys, bikes, bike repairs and helmets, new coats and venue rental.
If you would like to donate a bike and need someone to pick it up, please call 304-252-3874 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The bike need not be in perfect condition; Boy Scouts of Troops 103 and 3 will make repairs.
