On behalf of Mrs. Claus, thank you

5 Oct

I want to send out a quick public thank you to everyone who has reached out with offers to provide new toys or winter wear to held Florence Kinney, a.k.a. “Mrs. Claus,” reach her unbelievable goal of 100,000 gifts given to children.

If you missed that blog, here’s the story in a nutshell. For the last 32 years, Florence has been purchasing (almost exclusively with her own money) gifts for children who might not otherwise get anything for Christmas. By the end of last year she had donated more than 97,500 gifts, and this year hopes to top the 100,000 mark. Click here to read that blog.

If anyone is still interested in helping out, some of the items she’d especially appreciate include winter wear for children ages infant to 18 (like hats, gloves, scarves, lots and lots of socks); toy trucks, Little Peeples, Barnies, baby dolls or any toys without small parts; and storybooks. Bottom line, though, if you’d like to donate any kind of new toy or winter wear, she’ll find a child who will greatly appreciate it.

Drop me an email anytime at missyblog@gmail.com if you’d like more information or would like to arrange to have me pick up your items.

And thank you again!
