EastIdahoNews.com and Ashley Furniture HomeStore in Idaho Falls and Pocatello are teaming up to honor members of our community for Feel Good Friday. Every week we surprise someone who deserves a special thank you.
We recently heard about a woman who won a large amount of money at gambling. She was not a regular gamer and felt guilty so she decided to buy boxes and boxes of toys for the children. in need.
She gave the toys to her bishop and died shortly after. The items have been in the Bishop’s basement for a few years and he recently asked EastIdahoNews.com if we could help find them a good home.
We have learned that a toy drive is being organized for the Ronald McDonald Family Room at EIRMC until December 4th. On that day, a caravan of vehicles decorated with Christmas lights will deliver the toys to the Ronald McDonald Family Room, where families and children will receive them over the coming year.
EastIdahoNews.com decided to take the Bishop’s toys and deliver them to the Ronald McDonald Family Room, with a donation from Ashley HomeStore. Watch the video above to see the fun delivery!
The toy drive is sponsored by the Snake River Offroaders and donations can be made in Washington Federal in Idaho Falls or Rexburg, the Post Register, the Idaho State Journal, and the Rexburg Standard Journal.
