Today (December 20, 2012) is the last day donations can be accepted for this year’s Anna Toy Drive. For the 3rd consecutive year the Anna Chamber of Commerce is holding this Toy Drive for families in need this Christmas. Last Christmas 152 children from 44 families received Christmas gifts as a result of the Anna Toy Drive. All new, unwrapped toys are welcomed. The greatest need at this point in the drive is cash or gift card donations to accommodate the needs of teenagers on the gift list. Checks should be made out to Ruthann and Ken Herman, donors will receive tax exempt receipts for their donations.
Drop off locations include the Anna Police and Fire Stations, Brookshires and other local businesses. Sorting and delivery of the toys will be accomplished through volunteers, the police and fire department personnel, local churches and area families.
If you would prefer to make a food donation, the Spirit of Christmas Food Drive is also accepting donations. Anna's first Spirit of Christmas Food Drive began in 2008 when Brookshires opened in Anna. Cash donations accepted or grab bags can be purchased at Brookshires check-out counter.
To make a donation or for questions please contact Ruthann or Ken Herman at 972 924 8588.
The need is great. The time is short. All of us are asked to open our hearts and our wallets to help those in need.

"Shannon does her homework before she comes for the initial consultation. She is prompt, precise, and knows the area market. We had our house under contract in one day and closed within a month. This was the smoothest process we have ever had!! Shannon is truly fantastic to work with!"
