‘Play it Forward’ toy drive launchedWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | email@example.com
The Town Center at Levis Commons and Toledo Free Press have teamed up to collect gently used plastic toys for the Toledo Day Nursery. Donations can be dropped off in front of the movie theater at Levis Commons from 12 to 6 p.m., January, 22-24. Donated toys should be plastic, in working order, be clean and have fresh batteries installed whenever possible.
“Play it Forward is a simple concept with an extraordinary impact, said Casey Pogan, Marketing Director, The Town Center at Levis Commons, Hill Partners Inc. “When functioning and useable toys are thrown out, they become waste in a landfill, take up a lot of space and do not biodegrade. Adding to this is the fact that many children in our area go without toys which are instrumental in creativity and imagination development.”
Toledo Day Nursery is an early-childhood program that provides the highest quality care for infants to preschoolers. Reaching out to nearly 400 Toledo families each year, Toledo Day Nursery has been serving area families for 135 years through their three locations. The organization’s mission is to provide children of working and student parents with quality, affordable child care programs devoted to enhancing the child’s educational, social, emotional and physical development. Toledo Day Nursery is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
