Valley Bowling Lanes and Champions Lounge host 16th successful Toy Drive!

Each year Valley Bowling Lanes in Childs hosts a fundraiser to help children in their local community who are in need for Christmas as a way to "give back". Valley Bowling Lanes is a family owned and operated business that has been giving back with toy drives for the past fifteen Christmas's. Cindy McDonough, manager of Valley Bowling Lanes and Champions Lounge, started with only 4 children and has grown this fundraiser to help 52 children in the Carbondale, Jermyn and Mayfield area.

Every year she plans on helping more with their goal for next Christmas season being 55 children. "It has been such an important part of most of my adult life to be thankful for what I have and strive to use our family business as a mode in which to help others around us have a magical Christmas morning. Every child should believe in the magic of Christmas", McDonough remarked. 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. "All of this could simply not be possible without the support of our community, from the planning, to the shopping and the HUGE wrapping event," said McDonough.

Some generous contributors to this event include: Valley Bowling Lanes, Champions Lounge, NEP Telephone, G.I.R.T., Lakeland High School FCCLA Club and staff, The Big Chief and participating bowlers in all leagues at Valley Bowling 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 52 children in our area who need it most!
