Event Description

Calling all BRJ Volunteers!  We once again ask for your help to make a difference in our community.  Our volunteers have already stepped up for numerous community events such as trail clean-ups, a breast cancer benefit, and a food drive run to benefit families of deployed military personnel. 

 

Since our first Toys for Tots Jeep Night at C.R. Bucks Restaurant was such a HUGE success, and a second Toys for Tots Jeep Night scheduled for December 3rd, we're looking for volunteers to help with the actual distribution of Toys to needy families in our area.  In the past, this program has helped an average of 900 families including 3500-4500 children in Franklin County and surrounding counties in Pennsylvania.  The Toys for Tots program is managed locally by the Marine Corp League in Chambersburg.  After speaking with program representative, Tom Hazlett, and understanding how labor intensive the Toy distribution process is, I felt moved to at least offer my own time to help with this worthy cause.  I am now extending the invitation for all of our participants to lend a hand.  We're looking for volunteers 15 years of age and older who are willing to work a 4 hour block of time at the distribution center.  Please post your questions and concerns below.  Thank you for your consideration!

No problem Matt, family comes first!  If anything changes for you, you know where we'll be.  You and Amanda have always been a HUGE help when it comes to payin' it forward.

A final reminder that Peggy's Restaurant is a "cash only" business for those who will be joining us for breakfast on Sunday.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there!

OK folks, ALL of our toys have been turned into the Toy for Tots distribution site.  Thanks to YOUR efforts, we collected easily over 150 toys that filled six LARGE contractor bags.  AND, the Toys for Tots donation bucket at C.R. Bucks took in an overwhelming $85.76 that will go towards purchasing additional supplies for the program.  

Tom Hazlett (program director for this area) was very pleased with our efforts  in collecting toys/cash and was VERY excited to hear that BRJ will be participating in the distribution process.  If you've missed our two toy drive nights at C.R. Bucks, this is your opportunity to make a positive impact in our community.  We're asking for only a few hours of your time, and considering all of our other community service events to date, this will also be a blast!

Thanks for the heads up Smalls; that's always a good thing to know before you order.

I'll be there.

Don't forget, Peggies restaurant is CASH only. But its some of the best home made breakfast I've had.
