The holidays are fast approaching and it is time to think about our annual Holiday Toy Drive for WNY Heroes.  As we have since 2009, we will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the children of veterans.  Each year WNY Heroes assists veterans and their families with food, assistance, and  holiday gifts.  The Medaille community has always made a strong commitment to helping our local veterans’ families and I hope we will continue the generosity this holiday season.  So when you start your shopping for the season, please add this to your gift-buying list!


Barrels for donated toys will be located in the lobby of each campus starting in early November.  Toys and gift cards are very welcome.  Gift cards to Wegman’s, Tops, Target, Kohls, etc. are all very much appreciated. Unwrapped toys can be placed in the barrels, though I would ask that gift cards be sent directly to me so they don’t get lost in the shuffle.


Toys and gift cards will be accepted until Monday, December 16 at 6PM.


Thank you so much for your generosity and support…your donations make a big difference to a group that really needs help!
