Valley Bowling Lanes and Champions Lounge 2017 Christmas Toy Drive is Now Underway!
Hello! My name is Cindy McDonough. I am a manager at Valley Bowling Lanes and Champions Lounge in Carbondale, PA. Each year we take on local children in need and provide them with a Christmas that they will otherwise not receive. This is my 10th year involved in this program and I am excited to announce we will be helping 18 children this year from our area. Our "angels" each year with YOUR help have each received a complete Christmas with your generosity. (winter coat, hat, gloves, socks, pajamas, 2 outfits, 7-8 toys based on funding limitations and a full stocking complete with their names on it) This has been a successful Christmas toy drive for our local children for the past 8 years thanks to YOU!! Below is a picture of last year's tremendous turnout!
At this time, I ask for your continued support in making yet another remarkable Christmas for Children who are in desperate need. We also have a large donation box located inside of Valley Bowling Lanes - 1 Meredith Street, Childs, PA 18407. New, unwrapped toys are always welcomed!! Below is a list of our Angels and their wishes

We also are accepting donated gift boxes which are needed to wrap the clothing every year and wrapping paper! The response from the children is heart-warming, so grateful for your generosity. Thank you for your continued support. No doation is too small! Please help us to make Christmas for these children a little bit brighter!!

Christmas Toy Drive History
Each year Valley Bowling Lanes in Childs hosts a fundraiser to help children in our area who are in need for Christmas. Valley Bowling Lanes is a family owned and operated business that has been giving back with toy drives for the past eight Christmas’s. Cindy Dragwa, manager of Valley Bowling Lanes and Champions Lounge, started with only 4 children and has grown this fundraiser to help 17 children in the Jermyn and Mayfield area.
Every year she plans on helping more with their goal for next Christmas season being 19 children. Gifts generated through this fundraiser provide the recipients with winter coats, hats, gloves, full stockings, pajamas, outfits and toys that match the children’s Christmas wishes.
Some donations include: Valley Bowling Lanes, Champions Lounge, ACKs Liquidation Depot, NEP Telephone, Frank’s Place Restaurant, The Windsor Inn, Dr. Haley, Pioneer Insurance, Certified Derelicts Social Club, participating bowlers in all leagues at Valley lanes as well as patrons of Champions Lounge. A toy drive of this magnitude is not possible without your support.
Thank you to all who have contributed to making a magical Christmas morning for 17 children in our area who need it most!
