TCBJ and Star Tribune Toy Drive was a success!

Hats off to all our journalism elves who contributed to this year’s TCBJ and Star Tribune Toy Drive. We collected $3,634 for the Phyllis Wheatley Community Center’s annual toy drive.

This year, the funds will help 200 families have a delightful holiday. Toys and food will be distributed during a Covid-safe Santa Breakfast later this month. We are so proud of all the work PWCC does to make our children stronger, smarter and healthy and are delighted to have played a small role in its work.

Thanks to all our volunteers and donors. And special thanks to Star Tribune Books Editor Laurie Hertzel for providing hundreds of children’s books that will spark the love of reading in children for years to come.

Best, Dee, Nicole, Harry and Sheree.
