For over 29 years, the Junior League has put on a “toy sale” in our community for families who might not otherwise have holiday gifts for their children over the holidays. Throughout the year, we collect new or gently-used toys, bikes, play houses, games, puzzles, dolls, and books. After the fall Friends of the Library (FOL) book sale, we fill the FOL warehouse from front to back with all of these items. On the first Saturday of December, families bring an invitation provided by local community agencies and go through the warehouse with a personal shopper.
The 2019 Miracle on Main Street was a success! A few notable facts:
- Approximately 2,700 toys were given to
- 615 children
- 82 packs of diapers were distributed, donated by ABC Diaper Bank
- Worked with 23 community partners
- Each family who attended also received a pantry bag as part of our Action Against Hunger initiative
