what I have done alot of years, it isnt much, but I go to the machines in stores & hook toys, & every year I donate a couple garbage bags of stuffed toys from the machines. Where I work they took machine out, & replaced it with a small machine thats nearly impossible to work & I didnt get any. it needs spring tension adjusted, but they say its fine? lol for them maybe!

it isnt alot of money, but it is something thats fun, cheap & hopefully has made a lot of kids happy.

I have took as many as 5 garbage bags full, & even last year I took 2 full bags. figured I would go shop at wallyworld for a few items to give this year since I dont have bags of toys.

anyway tossing this out if anyone reads & likes the idea.

Sounds like you had a good plan I even went to goodwill several times last year and found some nice toys .After Christmas of 2010 went to Walgreen's and bought large bears and dogs for $5.00 a piece for this upcoming ride

Come early and register. The line up time is 12:30 and pull out time is about 1:00. Ride will end at GE rear parking lot. Roughly a 28 mile parade ride. Hope to see you there.

Bring a $10.00 donation or a $10.00 toy.

Some of our local stores will also donate toys to you if you tell them what you are riding for! Just another idea :-)

Several stores put out boxes for the toys 4 tots and accept unwrapped toys from the public. Looks like the weather is going to work with the ride this year. Shoney's in Salem said they would furnish the drink when you purchase a meal if you participate in the ride. Hope we have a lot of riders.
