87 Literacy Council Families Receive Toys for Tots

Each year in Western North Carolina, more than 100,000 children benefit from Christmas assistance in the way of donated toys, 9,000 of whom receive gifts through Toys for Tots. The 2017 holiday season marks the 4th year that the Literacy Council of Buncombe County has partnered with Toys for Tots so that our students are among those families benefiting from the program.

LCBC staff and tutors came together to ensure that the families we serve would have an opportunity to select a handful of gifts for the children in their lives. Everything from board games and action figures to stuffed animals and building blocks were available. We also included with every bag of toys a gently used, age-appropriate book to help foster a love of reading in the home.

We are excited to share that 87 different LCBC families were able to take advantage of the Toys for Tots drive, supporting 178 children in the month of December. 
 
One Adult Education student in particular was so moved by the experience, that they wanted to write a thank you letter (pictured above) with the help of a tutor.
