Casper Board of Realtors Surprise Needy Kids
You are looking at about $3000 in high-end toys, donated by the Casper Board of REALTORS to this year's Stuff The Van collection in Casper Wyoming.
Add to that around $500 in cash donations to the Wyoming Food For Thought project.
The Casper Board Of Realtors define its mission statement as follows;
To benefit our members by obtaining, developing, and promoting programs that will assist us in serving the public with integrity and competence; to profitably operate our business; and through collective action, to promote the right to own, transfer and use real property.
When I say high-end toys, I mean the good stuff that kids will really go nuts over. Making this the best Christmas EVER!
Let's start with a remote-controlled truck. There were several in their baskets.
Most toys these days need batteries of one kind or another.
These cars are rugged and will last well beyond Christmas day.
The tires on that thing mean somebody is going to go find out if it can run up and jump a snow bank.
This is a ground vehicle.
What about something that can fly?
There were also skateboards and scooters plus hair care products for the teenage girl.
You don't need a lot of money to help a needy family.
Anything you can do will help.
Each year at this time Townsquare media, along with other helpful members of the community gather toys for needy families in time for Christmas.
Camp is set up outside of Casper's east Walmart location, on 2nd street.
Some years the weather is not bad.
Some years, it's DOWN RIGHT BRUTAL.
But that never stops the volunteers from coming out and never stops the people of Casper from opening their hearts and their wallets.
The volunteers know this storm is coming but they are going to do it anyway.
The is to collect toys and gifts to make sure no Casper child goes without this Christmas.
Plus feeding them well beyond the holidays, with the vital Weekend Food Bags provided through the Wyoming Food for Thought Project.
Families will be helped through the Wyoming Food for Thought Project, the Casper Housing Authority, the Boys & Girls Club, the Child Development Center, and Orr’s Hope Foundation.
Look for the Townsquare media trailer in front of Walmart East from 7 ‘til 7 each day, as to collect new, unwrapped toys and clothes for kids of all ages, plus cash – over 3,000 kids on our Christmas will get help.
