Pillow Pet Holiday Drive Kick Off

Saturday, November 27th, was an exciting evening for TLC and our Pillow Pet Drive.  We were invited to speak at the Christmas Tree Lighting in Catonsville and opening of the Santa House.  Santa Arrives via fire engine.  It's such an exciting evening for children and adults alike.  It's a great family event in Catonsville. 

Before Santa's arrival, I was able to get up on stage with my little helpers ( my children and some of their friends joined me on stage with some really cute pillow pets to show the crowd) and promote TLC's pillow pet drive.  The crowd was the largest yet, and that was probably due to the weather.  It was an extremely warm evening.  A friend was distributing fliers to those in the crowd as well to help spread the word. 

All truly went well- I felt like it was success.

Now let's just hope we can meet our goal of obtaining 750 pillow pets or close to.  Time will tell. 

Since our official kickoff we've received 13 pillow pets.  Our total received is 24 to date, so we have a long way to go. 

Do you want to know more?  Our drive will run through December 18th.  We will be accepting donations of new pillow pets or monetary donations.  We have drop boxes throughout the Catonsville Community (Catonsville Gourmet, Catonsville Hair Co., McFarland & Masters, The Santa House and Paradise Hair Salon). 

Monetary donations can be made payable to Touching Lives With Comfort Foundation and mailed to 920 Frederick Road, Catonsville, MD 21228.

Many Blessings to all.
