Sams Auction Bidders Donates 120+ Toys for Toy Drive
For six years Sams Auction along with the awesome bidders have been doing Toy Drives for the children in the Clendenin and surrounding areas.
Each year we raise the Toy amount higher and each year we meet the goals thanks to the most awesome bidders we have on our auction. Mr. & Mrs. Claus dress in their Claus suits and set out door to door delivering toys to kids on a list of children that otherwise wouldn’t be having a Christmas.
We take the kids that didn’t get on other lists because they were late signing up, didn’t know where to turn to, or just hit hard luck at last minute for a reason unknown. This year our goal was 100 toys and we raised over 120!
We normally help between 10-20 families, 40-60 kids! Shane Marcum at Giovanni’s has donated pizzas for the last three years, this one included. The pizza for each family started when a kindergarten was asked what he wanted for Christmas and he said, “A pizza for my three-year-old sister!” When I called to order pizzas for the families and I told Shane why he was hooked. Shane is one of the most giving guys in our area. If you see Mr. & Mrs. Claus Driving in a red truck Friday, you know some kids somewhere will be smiling.
