Used toys needed for Cheer Fund deliveries

The Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund is in desperate need of gently used toys.

The Cheer Fund is boxing up toys for delivery and has found some holes in their inventory. Specifically, the firefighters are looking for people to donate toys for girls and boys, ages 8 to 12. Toys can be dropped off at any city fire station or at the United Way building on 13th Street, just behind the Bartholomew Consolidated School headquarters building and across the street from Sans Souci.

The firefighters are still boxing up packages for delivery and looking for volunteers to help with that. You can volunteer tomorrow or Friday nights with boxing starting at 6 in the evening. That’s also at the United Way building.

The Cheer Fund is Bartholomew County’s oldest charity and provides Christmas presents and food to about 1,500 children during the holidays.
