It's that time of year again...

Hi folks. Long time, no post. Sorry about that.

Anyway - DrummerWife and I would like to announce that we are going to be doing our little toy drive again this year, in Aaron's honor. We've contacted the Hershey Medical Center, and received a list of items they can accept for the children's ward. Without further ado, here's their wish list:

We'll be collecting the items at our house, and transporting them to the hospital ourselves, as we did last year. If you need to contact us with any questions or concerns, you most likely know how to do so. If you don't, email aky.toydrive@gmail.com for more information.

Last year, the toy drive was a huge success, not only in terms of collecting items for kids who have to live in the children's ward of the hospital, but also in terms of including Aaron in the holiday. Please help us collect toys again this year, to remember Aaron, and also to do something wonderful for kids who don't get to have a holiday like we do.
