Community Service Project
your house beginning to resemble a toy store? Are you
dreading that next birthday or holiday because you just
don’t have a spare scrap of space to put all those
new toys? Well, we have the answer for you –
donate all those toys that your kids have outgrown or
simply never play with. As another community service
project, we are contributing to a used toy drive that
St. Mary of the Lakes is running to benefit disadvantaged
children who are helped by two organizations. Early
Intervention of Burlington County works with children
under 3 who have developmental delays due to birth defects,
autism, or other problems. Ocean County Mental Health
has 14 programs to benefit children ages 3 through 13
who have emotional difficulties. Many of the toys
will be used to help the children through their therapies
and some will be used to just have fun. Together,
these groups help over 800 children a year, a large
portion of whom come from low income families that this
drive will benefit. We will be collecting toys
at both of our November meetings, so don't forget to
bring some along!
