IL-Champaign-Toys for Tots, WCIA Toy Drive-12/07/10

Postby SL9965 » Sat Dec 11, 2010 4:11 pm

Troops,

Last Tuesday for troopers of the MWG were deployed to WCIA Channel 3 in Champaign to assist with a Toys for Tots event. This is the MWG's third year for this toy drive collection. Once again, a lane of the street behind Channel 3 was blocked off so that people could drive up and donate toys. As cars stopped, we would greet the people and take whatever toys they had brought. Channel 3 news people and staff, along with some Marines, also collected toys. We started about 1:00 and had to stop at 4:00. The sun had started going down and it was getting even colder. Even with thermal underwear under my Underarmour and about 8 hand warmers, I was cold. I think the temperature was 20 degrees. We had a heated tent to get into to warm up if we needed to. Once again, a good event for the MWG and we'll be doing it again next year.

This was a great event and very worthy cause for the kids! This was my first time doing this event and I was surprised by how many items were dropped off! The spirit of Christmas is still very much alive.........
