Support toy drive

To the Times of Ti: Its that time of year when Franks Knotty Pine in Port Henry conducts our annual Toy Drive. This is our seventh year and as you may already know, area Essex County residents contact us and help us gather a list of area families who could use a little help providing gifts for the children in those families. With the generous support of local residents, organizations, and businesses, we receive donations of new, unwrapped toys for various age groups of children. We, at the Knotty Pine, then fill those wish lists for the children of families in need. Since beginning this toy drive in 2001, we have been very successful. The number of children we have provided gift boxes for has almost doubled every year. Last year, we provided gift boxes of several gifts each for 88 children in our area. Our mission is making every childs Christmas bright! As our toy drive season begins, we hope we can count on you or your business or organization to help us. With a pledge of a new toy or monetary gift, you can help us fill all the wish lists of our area children in need. We expect this toy drive to be our most successful yet! If you have a donation, drop off sites will be at Franks Knotty Pine or with Jack Woods at Sagans Department Store in Port Henry until Dec. 21. If you know of a family in need, please contact Beth or Frank Slycord at 518-546-3560. Thank you and happy holidays to all. Beth Slycord
