Did you enjoy your Thanksgiving? Were the yams marshmallow-y enough? Did your favorite team win? Did you have lots of family and friends to share your thankfulness? Of course, today(or perhaps yesterday) comes what some people consider the main event -- the shopping. I wish you luck tracking down all your Black Friday specials without being trampled by an overenthusiastic crowd. Perhaps, as you check off all those gifts on your list you'll find the space to add one more. A toy, a nonperishable food item, warm winter clothing. Because in the upcoming weeks there will be plenty of opportunities to donate it to a worthy cause. Here are a few to give you an idea:
YMCA Coat Closet
Coats (as well as mittens, hats, winter boots) are being accepted in sizes for children through adult at the Schuylkill YMCA, 520 N. Centre Street, Pottsville
Schuylkill County Toys for Tots
Boxes can be found throughout Schuylkill County (check your local grocery store or bank). Donations should be new and unwrapped. Some suggestions are educational toys, sports equipment, games and stuffed animals.
