We are very excited to announce that we will be conducting a toy drive on Friday, November 3 at the varsity football game. With Veterans Day coming up, we thought this would be a great way to support and encourage those who have served our nation so faithfully. We are partnering with Camaraderie Foundation to help bring joy to veterans and their families this holiday season.
Camaraderie Foundation is a non-profit that provides post 9/11 Service Members and their families with support, encouragement, and counseling to alleviate the stress associated with their transition from the battlefield back into society. They accomplish this through counseling services, mentoring for reintegration into the workforce and home life, as well as with Family Fun Days. For more information about Camaraderie, we invite you to watch this short video:
We love our veterans. This toy drive is just a small way for us to be able to give back to the heroes that have given us so much. We invite you to bring a toy to this Friday’s football game (11/3) and drop it off in the designated area that will be set up.
Camaraderie has requested 80 toys, but we are confident that we can do so much more and bless those veterans more than they could have imagined. We are collecting toys suitable for kids ages birth to 17 years old. If struggling to figure out what to bring, we have included a toy list below for reference.
Thank you so much for partnering with us this Holiday season! Your gifts will bless our veterans and their families tremendously.
