Toys for Tots Toy Drive Kick-Off
December 5 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The cancellation of the 2020 Holiday Party means more that 100 of us won’t be able to gather for food, wine, music, dancing and gifts at our dinner table. However, we hope to make up for that at the 2021 Holiday Party!
A staple of the Holiday party has been collecting toys for donation to holiday toy collections. For the last couple of years, we have donated to the Toys for Tots program sponsored by the U.S. Marines. We have decided to go ahead with this effort, since more children than ever before are in even greater need during these very difficult times. Therefore, on Saturday, December 5, from 3 pm to 5 pm, you may drop off unwrapped toys with the hosts at the front of the following two locations.
- Aji Tram, 4477 Lakeview Blvd, Lake Oswego, OR 97035, 503-342-6249
- The Lodge at Cascade Brewing, 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy, Portland, OR 97225, 503-296-0110
Due to the current restrictions on restaurants, our plans for joining friends at these 2 restaurants might be thwarted. We would like to suggest that you considering supporting these restaurants by ordering take out ahead of time and and taking your food home after dropping off your toys. Currently the Aji Tram is open for take out by ordering online or calling. Check out their web site here: Aji Tram. Currently the Lodge at Cascade Brewing is not offering any take out options except at the Barrel House in downtown Portland.
Phyllis and Ed Thiemann of Heckmann and Thiemann Motors will be our hosts at The Lodge at the Cascade Brewing. Bryan and Aimee Farley from Matrix Integrated will be our hosts at Aji Tram. Also, Steve and Winnie Miller will divide up to welcome you at these 2 locations. This is truly a community effort.
Please come by and say hi!
Have someone take a picture of you dropping off your toys with the hosts and send to Peg at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will create an article for the February Anzeiger!
