With hospitals requesting fewer donations this year, we turned our efforts to building toys for Christmas and starting in mid-summer we built about 800 toys working one half day per week in the shop and in our home shops. The photos show a representative sample of the items that were built and will be donated to charitable organizations in the St Louis area.
    Our thanks to several generous donors that funded the program and all those that participated in any way.

      Your organization for sustaining such a worthwhile project for. Such an extended period. I’m sure there have been many happy children who have received them throughout the years. Quite an undertaking shown here and even more children to make happy no doubt on Christmas. Thank you for your organization’s hard work. I see lots of beautiful handmade toys there.

        The Woodworking club Bruce belongs to has thousands of toys they can’t give away. They are giving some to shelters and storing the rest for now.

            Thank you for your service. When I belonged to a wood working club I made toys for Toys for Tots. It was a very heart warming experience.

                Our scroll saw club has made toys for Toys for Tots for as long as I can remember. The quantity and mix varies from year to year, but they always seem to be appreciative of our efforts.
