Help Eyewitness News take a project to new heights. We want to build the tallest “Tower of Toys” ever assembled to bring joy to lots of deserving boys and girls in our area.
The annual drive starts at 6 p.m. today, and we need your donations so Union Mission can distribute toys throughout the area before Christmas to children who likely would go without anything under the tree.
Participating is simple. Just drop off a new unwrapped toy at the station’s studios in Charleston, 1301 Piedmont Road, or in Huntington, 1002 Fourth Ave. Donations also can be made at the Building and Remodeling Warehouse in Nitro. Other partners include Off Broadway Shoes and the Kanawha Valley Corvette Club.
Give a gift that really will make you feel good and bring joy to a child who does not have much to smile about. But you must act quickly; our toy drive wraps up Dec. 14.
Also, there is a chance to make a donation while doing something healthy. Runners and walkers participating in the first Winter Series Walks/Runs on Sunday, Dec. 9, in Charleston are being asked to donate a new unwrapped toy when they come to the events. All toys will go to the “Tower of Toys” project.
Registration for the 1 p.m. 3,000-meter walk (1.8 miles) and the 2 p.m. 5,000-meter run (3.1 miles) is at Charleston Area Medical Center Memorial Hospital. The walk and run start at 31st Street and Virginia Avenue. For more information or to obtain a registration form, visit http://tallmantrackclub.com/winter_series.htm.
So please come help us build a huge “Tower of Toys” that will put smiles on the faces of lots of really deserving kids this Christmas.
