PostSubject: Christmas Donations?   Tue Nov 16, 2010 8:59 pm

Now that we have a fair amount of members, maybe we could do for those who can't this year.

I was woundering if you guys, as a club, be interested make a one time donation to the Toys For Tots program put on by the United States Marines. Or an organization more local that helps with food, clothing, fuel assistance for those who need it.

Like I said. I would like to do something as a club.

Ideas? Thoughts?

My other thought would be if we knew a family in need, and just helped them. I do want to keep this simple and uncomplicated. And something we all agree to.

Thanks. I dont know if I will be in charge so to speak, but I think it would be a wounderful idea to help our fellow man out in a time of need. With the economy the way it is, every little bit helps. Individualy we can make a differnce in a small way, but as a group, we could make a decent impact on someones holiday for the better. Arrow

So I guess the first thing is to figure out which charity we would like to help. It seems like there is enough people willing to participate to make this work.

Phyllis has suggested we find one needy family, and help them. That way we know where our gift went.

There is a local family that was in the paper who lost their husband/father this past September. There is a memorial fund for their two kids set up thru a local bank

Great ideas. I like both. I was thinking soup kitchen, or food bank, or even Childrens hospital.

Would it be a good idea just to make a poll and the one with the most votes will recive the gift?

If you want, I can see if I can find any donation addresses for regional charities/ hospitals at work. Families usually have a place they like donations sent in lieu of flowers.

Plus getting toys on Christmas morning was the best thing in the history of ever as a younger kid. Still is. It's not fair for kids not to have that joy, I'm in for whatever we end up doing. I think giving to a needy family is the best choice though Smile

No your not, so get ready to help out. Arrow

Ok. I think one of two ways will work well. After doing some searching diffrent foundations, I think Toys for Tots is in fact the best place for us to give a gift to. As you can see from the chart, 96.4% of the money goes directly to the children.
http://www.toysfortots.org/donate/default.asp

Or if someone directly or indirectly knows of a family having it very tough, and could use the help.
I know Justin mentioned a family, and if that is the family eveyone would like to help, I am good with that too.
After all, the whole ide is to help those who need it.

I think I am sold on Toys for Tots. So no need for the poll. It is just such a good thing to help. Phyllis and I do donate a few toys to them almost every year.

Anthony mentioned a toys for tots bowling event in manchester. dec. 4th, put on by a local car club. This sounds like it would be a load of fun.

i will be reserving a lane for me and the kids within the next week.
if theres any interest let me know and ill reserve more lanes.

I hope I didn't jump the gun, but I put in my donation thru pray/pal to TFT already at the uniquekind address, and then sent you a pm, but since I am still pretty much from the old American Indian Tribe "the Fah-KOW-wee", when it comes to computer operating, and so consequently cant tell if it reached you or not! Let me know, ah-KAY?
