My name is Mallorie Jordan and for my Emmett High School Senior Project I am putting on Christmas In July, a toy drive in partnership with the Emmett Valley Friendship Coalition. All of the toys and money that are brought in through Christmas In July will go towards the Christmas Cheer Program, which provides toys and a holiday meal at Christmas for families in need throughout Gem County. The toy drive will take place on Saturday, July 26th, from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. in the parking lot of the Kings in Emmett, and I need help from our community in order for this drive to be successful. The age range for toys is 0-12 years old, and I need all the toys I can get. If you would like to help but do not wish to purchase a toy, I will also be accepting monetary donations--all of which will be going directly into the Christmas Cheer Program. All of the toys brought in will be stored away until Christmas and then will be brought out and distributed to families who are unable to buy Christmas presents for their children. I want to be able to give back to this community that has always helped me out, but I can't do it without the help of everyone else. If you could please come by this Saturday and drop off a new toy, or donation, it would make an enormous difference to a little boy or girl this upcoming holiday season. If you have any questions about my drive or would like a copy of my toy idea list you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your help and I hope to see you on Saturday!
