O’Fallon chamber to help support Toy Town this holiday season
This holiday season the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Salvation Army of O’Fallon to help promote and collect donations for the 2012 Toy Town held at O’Fallon City Hall.
Toy Town will help many families in St. Charles County who are struggling to provide Christmas toys for their children. Each year Toy Town collects toys, clothes and other necessities from local drives, in order to provide gifts for children and seniors in the western St. Charles County area. Families who qualify within a certain income bracket register in November, and are allowed to come shop for gifts for their children at no cost. Each family is allowed to choose one large gift, two small and something from the puzzle, games and clothing tables.
O’Fallon chamber members and their families will volunteer from 9 a.m. until noon on Dec. 10 through the Dec. 13, to wrap presents, help set up, assist clients with shopping, and take down the annual Christmas Toy Town.
New toys of $20 or more can be dropped off at the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce, 2145 Bryan Valley Commercial Drive in O’Fallon, or the O’Fallon Salvation Army, 1 William Booth Drive in O’Fallon anytime between now and Dec. 8.
The O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce will also be collecting items at its Nov. 27 General Membership Meeting at Whitmoor Country Club.
