I am used to opening the mailbox and seeing bills. But yesterday I opened the mailbox and saw a BIG FAT CHECK for Play it Forward! A check for $1,000 from the Mellon Corporation. It was a company matching donations from one of our board members. You have no idea how much that means to us. We operate with about a $2,500 budget each year, which is our cost to run the toy drive. This puts a huge dent in that fundraising and that means the drive this year is going to happen!
Now we just need to start planning!
