Greetings! For those of you who are not members of our Facebook group, I would like to share the following message I posted earlier regarding our Toys for Tots drive:
I am excited to announce that we are continuing with our Toys for Tots tradition for the fourth straight year! I hope that you will consider donating. By doing this, we are not endorsing religious holidays but trying to make a difference for the children in need.
Our toy drive with run through Monday, December 10. There should be somebody available at all our meetups between now and then to take donations. We will accept new unwrapped toys (please stay away from anything chemical, edible, military-themed, or stuffed animals) or monetary donations. Receipts will be available – please message me if you did not get one.
Don’t have time to make it to the meetup – no problem! Just go to our website (iowaatheists.org) at any time and donate via PayPal. Please indicate in the comments section that this is for Toys for Tots. We will probably have a dedicated button for this soon, so you will not even have to type in the comment.
Lastly, to reflect the spirit of our organization, one possible suggestion would be to get toys that are science-oriented or educational in nature – however, this is entirely up to you. Thank you for participating!
