FAN Pattycake Place Toy Drive for Winchester Public Library
Pattycake Place, a program for children up to 2 years old held weekly at the Winchester Public Library, needs some safe, new toys for free-play (http://www.winpublib.org/childrens.htm). Please join FAN & help fill the toy bins with new toys for this beloved program.
Two local vendors have partnered with FAN & graciously agreed to maintain the library's "Wish List": Henry Bear's Park in Arlington (http://www.henrybear.com/) & Catch a Falling Star in Winchester Center (http://catchafallingstartoys.com/). Both retailers have offered to hold the toys as a drop-off, once purchases have been made at the respective stores.
Donations will be accepted from November 6th-November 30th.
If you would like to make a cash donation, please make it out to Winchester Public Library with a memo that the funds are intended for the toy drive.
Questions? Contact Sarah Doyle at email@example.com or visit www.fanwinchester.org. Thanks for your support!
