LouCity and Racing Lou supporters and players  are joining together once again for the annual Kentucky Refugee Ministries Toy Drive.

Join supporters and players to purchase and donate toys from KRM’s wishlist for kids in need! See below for links and wishlists.

 

Unwrapped toys may dropped off at the LouCity/Racing team store in the designated bin or  with the LouCity Ladies starting Monday, November 22. Call Jen at 502-292-9163 to coordinate drop off/pick up.

All toys need to be shipped (from Amazon Wishlist) by December 6th. All toy drop off/pick ups must be coordinated by December 8th.

The toys will be delivered to KRM on December 10th .

In general, we would advise avoiding anything that is electronic or requires batteries. We like to encourage imaginative, active play – many ‘classic’ toys fit that description (shape sorters, xylophone or piano baby toys, Magnadoodle, Mr. Potato Head, toy musical instruments).
