Hundreds of Toys Collected for Toys for Tots

Thank you to King Lion Dan Reilly and his wife Sally for opening up their home for a wonderful Holiday Giving event that supported Toys for Tots, the Concord Lions, Cradles to Crayons Massachusetts, Lazarus House, and other organizations.

And thank you to Dan and Sally’s very generous friends and neighbors and other supporters. By the end of the afternoon, the room was truly overflowing with toys (well in excess of 500). We filled four official Toys for Tots boxes which our guest Marine took to deliver to Toys for Tots. We will use a caravan of cars to bring the remaining toys to the Lions District Advisory meeting at which they will be presented to Toys for Tots.

And thank you Stephanie Beach Magic and Mark Valentine for once again entertaining our minds and our taste buds. And to our high school volunteers, Sadie, Gretchen, Morgan, Alexander, and Griffin, who helped entertain the kids, decorated many cards, packed boxes and bags of toys, and even agreed to be our Miss. Lion for the afternoon! You were all key to making the event a success.
