Children across KOTA Territory are getting to un–wrap unique hand–made toys. Members of the Rapid City Woodworkers Association are delivering more than 2,200 toys for children in area programs, including the kids in the head start program with Youth and family Services. For some of these children, it could be the only gift they receive this Christmas.
"Our head start program and our agency doesn't have the funds to give gifts to our families but this one gift that we can give to a family because an outside Grouped came in and shared from their heart for our children and our parents," said Darcie Decker of Youth and Family Services.
Gifts from the heart are just as good as toys brought in a store, according to Woodworkers Association member Bob Buchanan.
"These toys the kids can use their imagination and do whatever they want with it, make it climb the wall or go underneath the couch, they can just do anything with it and the best part of the old toys I think," said Buchanan.
The Rapid City Woodworkers association has made 8,882 toys for charity over the last several years.
