On behalf of all the volunteers at Tex Reynolds’ Toys for Tots, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made it possible for us to fulfill our goals this year.
We work very hard to help as many families as possible each year. This past Christmas, we provided toys for 1,521 children from 560 families. We are extremely lucky to be part of a very generous community of businesses, organizations and individuals.
I wish I could thank everyone in this space but a few must be mentioned: the City of Racine for providing space for our workshop; The Journal Times for promoting our cause; the Good Fellers for financial support; the fire stations of Racine, Caledonia, Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant for being drop-off locations year-round; SC Johnson for providing boxes for distribution and generous toy donations; Farm and Fleet for pallets of toys; and the Kohl’s Store Cares Program for their volunteers and donations.
On a personal note, my thanks to the best volunteers anywhere. If it’s broken, they can fix it. If it’s dirty, they can clean it. If it’s old, they can make it new again. Have a safe and happy new year.
President, Tex Reynolds’ Toys for Tots
