Hey!!! Toys for Tots is ON!!!!!!!!!!! And let's not forget the older kids who may need: Hats, gloves, scarves, a gift certificate from Wal Mart (personal items, hygene is imprortant to these "KIDS" also) Socks...a new toothbrush, a nice Tshirt, or a pair of jeans..... ALLLLL things go to Routt County kids! Been a very hard last few months. Little ones are happy with smaller "gifts". Lets remember the older ones with a little dignity. Whoever doesn't know what to donate.... a $10 gift card to ANY local store may give a young-un a little boost this holiday. There are only so many CandyLand games that can be used. A ten dollar gift certificate may not be used right away, but WOULD be used by any "Tween, Teen...Not such a kid..." recipient. While they may know "Santa doesn't always come down the chimney:", They deserve a little hope also.
