Cash Donations Stay Right Here in the Wenatchee Valley

Thanks to cash donations, events like Wednesday’s shopping spree with the “Kid Experts” can happen.  The Community Toy Drive is a local, 501-c-3 non-profit organization which works through local agencies to help buy toys for children in the Wenatchee Valley.  Currently, Serve Wenatchee Valley, CASA, the Bruce House, Grace House and Children’s Home Society are all recipients of the toys, who then distribute them to children in the valley.
