Toys-for-Tots Donations:

 In staying with the Construction Safety Council's tradition of collecting toys in the month of December for those children less fortune than our own, and due to COVID 19 and trying to keep everyone safe, we have set up a donation page.  No toys will be accepted, due to COVID, but donations can be made.  The Safety Council matches your donation and a check will be sent to Toys for Tots.  You can donate until December 16th.  We thank you in advance for your generosity over the year.
