Doll and Toy Distribution
Every year, Rotary partners with The Town Talk to give away lots of toys to needy families in our area. This year's Doll & Toy Distribution was held on Saturday, December 16th at Convention Hall. Over 60 Rotarians and many other volunteers helped make this one of our best events ever!
Toys were given to 332 families with a total of 922 children receiving a gift. Thanks to the generosity of Rotarian Leetha Harris, each child received a fidget spinner in addition to a toy. The United Way of Central Louisiana was also on hand to offer a free book to each child. Walgreen's Pharmacy was there too giving free flu shots. Thanks to Rotarian David Britt for his efforts through United Way to make the book give away and Walgreen's flu shots part of the toy give away.
Many thanks to Warren Morris and his committee for all their hard work on this year's toy distribution. Thank you to the many Rotarians who gave monetarily and the many who also volunteered at the event. It truly was a community-wide effort that brought much joy to a great number of people.
