While you are out Christmas shopping, please think about purchasing a toy for local tots or teens.
Although Hometown Holiday is in the past, organizers in partnership with Palmer Auto Service have begun collecting donations of new unwrapped toys for the annual ‘Toys for Tots and Teens’ holiday toy drive.
The toys collected are taken to Faith in Action in Chelsea and distributed to local children.
Each year, Faith In Action is in need of toys for boys and girls of all ages, especially teens ages 12 and up. Donations of new unwrapped toys can be placed under ‘Collection Trees’ at Palmer Auto Service located at 222 South Main St.
“We are honored to be a part of this Chelsea tradition and to help give back to our neighbors and friends during the Holiday season,” said Bob Mock, owner of Palmer Auto Service.
Suzie Palmer Weber, started the program over thirty years ago when she reached out to Chelsea Schools, Jiffy Mix employees, and the surrounding community to help fulfill the needs of local youth during the holidays.
Toy donations will be delivered to Faith In Action at noon on Dec. 17, so please leave all donations at Palmer Auto Service before that time.
If you have questions, please phone Leigh Schwarz at (734) 626-5783 or email [email protected].
