We have received a great response, but we could use a lot more! To recap, Vince and Judy Else are a retired couple living in small town Iowa who dedicate their time to collecting old toys, books, puzzles, stuffed animals, etc., to clean and repair for children to open at Christmastime. Days before the holiday, their warehouse burned to the ground and destroyed thousands of toys to be used for 2013. The gifts for this past Christmas were being stored in a different location and were given to children in need. The Else's story made the news circuit and while they will not accept monetary donations, they will accept used toys in any condition. This is a great opportunity to do something good for children in Iowa who wouldn't otherwise have gifts to open on Christmas. A donation of any size would require no money from you and little of your time. All we're asking is to drop off your kids' or grandkids' old toys and the rest will be done for you. Norwalk Easter Public Library has been kind enough to accept donations since City Hall is closed evenings and weekends. We will continue to accept items through the month of February. Thank you to all who have given to this most worthy cause!
