It’s Time for Our Annual Toy Drive! This Year, It’s by Mail

Metropolitan Ministries will serve thousands of families in need for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, and as usual our chapter is lending a hand! As is our tradition, PRSA Tampa Bay is hosting a toy drive to collect items to be dropped off at the Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Tent. This year, however, we’re collecting them by mail, and each toy donated by mail will earn the donor one opportunity to win one of several special prizes at our holiday mixer.

Here’s how it works. Either mail a new, unwrapped toy or arrange for a company like Amazon to have a toy mailed to the address of Public Service Committee Chair Joseph Priest at the address below, and arrange for the toy to be delivered by Dec. 11. After that date, the committee will take all the mailed-in toys and drop them off at the Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Tent. 

Please note, when you send your toy, email Joseph at [email protected] to let the Public Service Committee know about your donation. The committee will respond to you with a unique ticket number that you should save and be ready to claim at the mixer if it’s selected. Each ticket number earns a donor a chance to win one of several special prizes at the mixer, where all the tickets will be entered in a drawing, and several tickets will be randomly selected and winners presented prizes.

Remember, please arrange to have your toy delivered by Dec. 11 to the address below, and be sure to send an email to [email protected] to let the Public Service Committee know so they can give you a ticket number for each toy you donate. Thank you for anything you can give!
