DECEMBER TOY/FOOD DRIVE
Where has 2017 gone? It is the holiday season again and time for the annual toy/food drive. To help make this the best toy/food drive HCA has sponsored, consider starting now and getting your whole office involved. This year Hurricane Harvey has caused an increase in the number of hardships on many families. HCA is requesting that new toys for infants to age 16 and non-perishable food items be brought to the December luncheon. Following the meeting, food items will be delivered to Pathways Food Pantry and toys to a local fire station for distribution for Toys for Tots. Little ones are always fun to buy for, but please don’t forget the teenagers!!
Vendors, you are encouraged to sponsor a door prize for our attendees. Let us know when you RSVP.
