This week we hear from Martha Davis, the Executive Director at Toy Rescue Mission. Toy Rescue Mission depends entirely on volunteers and one of those volunteers, Hadley Reeder joins us too. A Senior at Gig Harbor High School, Hadley finds a real sense of family among the volunteers at Toy Rescue Mission.
Toy Rescue Mission is in the generous position of refurbishing and recycling gently-used toys for disadvantaged children and seniors in care facilities. At the same time TRM provides a meaningful opportunity for the child in all of us to volunteer and give back to the community.
On Saturday, November 29th Santa will make an appearance at Toy Rescue Mission for kids and adults can register to win one of twenty 6 foot pre-lit Christmas Trees.
Toy Rescue Mission is located at 607 South Winnifred Street in Tacoma.
