This month's meeting took us on a field trip to Toys 4 Smiles, a non-profit group here in town devoted to ensuring that every child has a toy in hand, especially during difficult time, such as hospital visits.
|Rex explaining the program -- check out the cars and goodies on the table.|
Toys4Smiles is a wonderful organization that exists because of the heart Rex Doty has for bringing smiles on children's faces that are having a difficult time or going through some type of personal trauma. The passion Rex has for this is evident when you hear him explain and trace the history of the organization.
|The wall where children who have toured and helped in the shop sign their thoughts and appreciation.|
He is able to attract volunteers to help in the shop from every walk of life. These include everyone from school age groups, scout organizations, and college age students to adults and retired folks just looking for a place to spend time doing something they believe in.
