Toys For Tots Update

Hello Russ,
I thought I would follow up on the “call for volunteers” that you sent out on behalf of Toy’s 4 Tots at the Marietta collection center.
Following is a list of those who answered the call:
Past Commander William (Bill) Beaudin and his wife Lorri (Auxiliary Unit 29) volunteered several hours each on 12/14, 17 & 18.
Legionnaire David Thomas and his son Austin on 12/14 volunteered for several hours each.
Sandy Thompson (Auxiliary Unit 29) volunteered several hours per day from 12/17 through the 21st. She also volunteered on Christmas Eve along with a friend that she brought with her to help.
Jerrie Clark (Auxiliary Unit 29) put in several hours per day from 12/17 through the 20th. She brought a friend with her on the 17th also. 
Jackie Brodie (Auxiliary Unit 29) worked a few hours a day from 12/17 through the 21st.
Legionnaire Robert King volunteered for several hours on both the 20th & 21st. 
I (Auxiliary Unit 29 & member of ALR Post 29) volunteered for 70.5 hours. A couple of days early in November (8 hours). The remainder of my time (62.5 hours) was spread out between December 4th and the 24th.
Thank you to all who answered the call and put in the hours to help us complete the mission.
