Area Kids Need Our Help!
Christmas is a time of joy, happiness, and goodwill. It is a time of giving and helping those who are less fortunate than us, especially children.
We are happy to once again partner with the U.S Marine Corps to help make area children’s Christmas a little brighter through the Toys for Tots program. We ask you to help us spread a little Christmas joy this holiday season by donating a toy.
Through the Toys for Tots program, toys are collected and distributed to local children in an effort to bring joy, happiness, and goodwill this Christmas season. It is a time of giving and helping those who are less fortunate, especially children.
Last year CWEC was able to provide toys to more than 1,100 area children. All indications are that toys will need to be collected for at least the same number of children this year. It is a daunting task to collect enough toys for that many children. You can help spread a little Christmas joy this holiday season by donating a new unwrapped toy. All of the toys collected are distributed locally.
To find the collection site nearest you, visit: www.cwecoop.com.
If you would like CWEC to do the shopping for you, you can make a check to Toys for Tots and mail it to: Central Wisconsin Electric Cooperative, PO Box 100, Rosholt, WI 54473. If you would like to make a donation online, go tohttp://iola-wi.toysfortots.org.
Best wishes for a joyful Christmas.
