It's hard to believe that next week is November. We all know what that means.... the holidays will be upon us before we know it. How can it be? With that said, TLC will be busy working on promoting our Holiday Drive. We've got to spread the word to family and friends as well as into the community. We hope that our family and friends will spread the word as they did last year to their family and friends, and so on.
Further, with the help of our kid's school student council they will be creating fliers and posters to be distributed in local businesses throughout the community to promote the drive which will "kick off" in the community the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We'll have drop boxes at several businesses in hopes to make it easy for someone to make a donation. We will also be collecting monetary donations if one prefers to make a donation that way. We'll use the money to purchase pillow pets at cost from My Pillow Pet Co., as we did last year, which allows us to stretch our money a bit further, providing that many more pillow pets reaching more children.
Last year we collected 250 pillow pets. This year I would love to see that number triple! Time will tell. Of course any number that is donated is greatly appreciated.
