Scotty here,
I found myself in a position to spearhead a Toy Drive for a little church We go to in SR.
Knox Presbyterian. We partnered with Segals ATA Martial Arts also in Santa Rosa.
The idea is to get toys to kids who lost their houses in the Oct fires
 that ravaged this area.
So I've been in  contact with several places that we  can distribute toys. Kenwood school will be receiving gifts and possibly Dunbar.
The Santa Rosa Fire Dept has a program called "Toys for Kids"
Different than the marine based 'Toys for Tots" which is also a great program.
"Toys for Kids" will  be focusing their efforts on kids who lost homes as well,
 so a big percentage of our Toys will go there. Plus a couple other leads.

Not just one or two, , but SO many neighborhoods in and around Santa Rosa just disappeared that Windy night in Oct. I get a queasy feeling in my stomach when I go thru the burnt out area's of town.  It's just so bizarre and sad!!!

I'll just say it... I'm looking for some NCKA peeps who might have a spot in their heart  for donating a toy for these kids. Some people want to help but not sure how?
This is easy and convenient.  I mean $10-$20 isn't too much of a burden is it?
 Paypay me at  ss309@comcast.net is the best way.
 We will be going on a Toy shopping spree around Dec 10th, it will be fun!

I made a post2 weeks ago but the old "Sorry, no content available" made viewing of the original post impossible on my phone, but it had 242 views, 8 replys, 3 donations for $120,(thank you!) so I suspect most people couldn't see it either  if their using their phone?     and alot of people use their phone!   I do...

 I got alot of feelers out and have rec about 25 toys and almost $500 toward the toy shopping spree!  So hopefully I can hit my 100 toy Goal.
The drive runs thru the 1st week in Dec.
I know everybody wants ur $$$ but if you can help out I Thank You !
Best Wishes
Scotty

No problem.  Paypay sounded like a real thing. 

I will try to send you some money before your trip to the store.
