Final Toys For Tots Update for 2014

We did it! For the 4th year in a row WE BEAT Toys ‘R Us, thanks to the awesome generosity of those who donated!

We collected over 400 toys for underprivileged children in Dutchess County. That means the 400 children will have something under their Christmas tree this year. If you missed our celebration on the 6th, we’re still collecting up until the 21st, which is the national cut-off date.

Our silent auction and raffle raised over $600! 10% of all money raised goes to administrative costs such as maintaining the website and getting operations supplies such as the collection boxes, banners and the train tickets that get hung in the windows whenever someone makes a cash donation. Not one penny goes into anyone’s pocket. Toys For Tots is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit organization.

We would like to thank all of the comic book writers and artists that donated their time and works, everyone who donated food and refreshments, our superhero Black Nova, and most importantly, everyone who stopped by and donated toys. THANK YOU!

Watch for details on our next big event, National Free Comic Book Day, May 2nd, 2015!
