Lions Toy Box Donations Needed

 

Dear Friend,


Since its inception in 1947, the Toys for Tots program has provided over 400 million Christmas toys to needy children across the country. A program established by the U.S. Marine Corps, Toys for Tots’ mission is to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmastime.


For the last seventeen years, the Durant Lions Club has collaborated with the Marine Corps to bring the Toys for Tots program to Bryan County and has provided thousands of toys to economically challenged children within our local community. 


As the 2017 Christmas season approaches, members of the Durant Lions Club are preparing to make the Christmas wishes of approximately 1,800 local children come true.  To be successful in this endeavor, we need your help. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help bring joy to at least one child this Christmas. A nominal gift of $25 will provide one child with a Christmas toy.  


Please make your check payable to “Lions Toy Box” and send your gift of $25, $50, $100 or an amount of your choice to:


Lions Toy Box
P.O. Box 1196
Durant, OK  74702


You may also support the program by placing a new unwrapped toy in one of our many distribution boxes located within local businesses throughout the community (including Durant Area Chamber of Commerce - 215 N 4th Ave). Thank you for your generosity.


Sincerely,

Paul Buntz
President, Durant Lions Club
