2013 Donna Pittman Christmas Toy Store
Thank you for participating in the Donna Pittman Christmas Toy Store. The Toy Store was a wonderful and amazing place to be this weekend. I wish you could have seen all the toys and how pretty our room was set up. So many of you worked on Saturday morning, volunteering to help the shoppers, work in the kitchen, reload toys on tables, and even go out shopping to meet the needs of the children. I appreciate every toy that was given and all the monetary gifts. We were blessed to have 30 bikes, tricycles and small riding toys for the younger children. The families that received Christmas for their children were so excited. Some of their stories are so sad and it is great to have the counselors here to pray with them.
We were able to serve 75 families and 238 children. God truly blessed the Toy Store for the seventh year. We had 7 adults to accept the Lord, and that is what the Toy Store is all about—spreading the word of Jesus. I feel so Blessed to have the opportunity to serve the Lord through the Toy Store with your help. Saying "thank you" just doesn’t seem to be enough. I pray and thank God for each one who prayed and helped in any way to make the Toy Store what it was. God Bless you all and Merry Christmas!
Love in Christ
Teresa Polk, UBA Toy Store Director
UPDATE:  The total number of familes served was 89 and 225 children.  All left over toys were sent to Guatemala with Rev. Caroll Anthony from Philadelphia Baptist Church.
