This sounds GREAT! Since this is our first year, I have some questions – Where do we drop off the gifts, what is the deadline date for drop off, and do we bring the gifts wrapped or unwrapped? Thank you for organizing this!
Hi Mo, great questions…All gifts/toys should be “Unwrapped” and brought to our Holiday Party December 10th. If you are unable to attend our Holiday Party we will have a designated “House” as a gathering point. Deadline t drop off will be December 9th. Working on updating this post with this information, just waiting on the “House” part 🙂
Thanks, Dusty! See you at the Holiday Party with our unwrapped gifts! 🙂
The gifts/toys can be sent to Barbara Carver and we will bring the gifts/toys to our Holiday Party on your behalf.
