Miami Township, Ohio – Today, the Neighborhood Network of Miami Trails’ held their first ever drive-through toy drive benefiting local children through Loveland’s LIFE Food Pantry.
Nicole Kormos said this afternoon, “That’s a wrap! It was a busy but successful day.”
The event was specially designed to offer the subdivision neighbors a “COVID-friendly” family giving experience for the holidays. Neighbors came through a convenient drop-off line to give their un-wrapped gift donations and dollars, receive some fun holiday goodies including hot chocolate, candy canes, reindeer treats, and waved to Santa. His wife was there too.
“Overall, we had more than 60 families donate around 150 new toys that will benefit Loveland’s LIFE Food Pantry,” said Kormos.
The neighbors used SignUpGenius to select a child’s age and gender so everyone knew which age appropriate gifts to shop for and so there would’t be too many duplicates. It was sort of a Dear Santa letter with a wish list to shop from.
