At our October meeting the CCC kicked off a campaign to collect new toys for Toys For Tots during the month of October. CCC members took Toys For Tots collection boxes which will be placed in businesses and government buildings throughout Elk Grove. The toys collected by our November 5 will be brought to our meeting and representatives from the USMC will come to receive them.
The photo shows some who were on hand on October 1 to launch this CCC Toys For Tots drive in Elk Grove. Pictured (l. to r.) are Ruth Jaworsky, Alfred Kolodziej, both with the Northwest Suburban Marine Corps Detachment, Curt Hansen, CCCEG President, and Roy Frank, Founder of Heart of a Marine Foundation.
Alfred and Ruth told us that toys for younger ages are always plentiful. There is always a need for toys for children ages 10 to 16.
