Toys for Tots Area Collection by Not Your Average Nurse
The name of the charity is Not Your Average Nurse. It was formed by Alan Beatty who is the brains behind the idea.
He recruited fellow nurse Breighane Arbo as his sidekick. They were good friends in Nursing School, and have remained close.
Not Your Average Nurse has partnered with Bouchard & Sons Towing and are collecting toys which will be donated to Toys for Tots in time to distribute before Christmas.
The collections for their 2nd year are underway and will run through Thursday, December 15th.
They are collecting new, unwrapped toys in their original packaging.
Here is where you can donate, and also what they are giving you for a toy(s) donation.
