Stuff the Sleigh Rained Out for Monday!

December 4th, 2011

Due to the massive amounts of rain we have received, we have made the decision to cancel the toy drive’s kick off at the Bryant Walmart. The high potential for flooding and large amounts of rain that are forcasted to continue to fall all night and all day Monday, it is much safer to kick off the 2011 Stuff the Sleigh toy drive on Tuesday at the Walmart in Cabot.
Any toys that are brought to the Bryant Walmart may be left at their Customer Service desk where they will be picked up this week.

This is the first time we have had to cancel a morning in 10 years! We are disappointed, but hope to see everyone out at the other locations!

Gearing Up for 2011 Toy Drive!

November 15th, 2011

Wow! This year’s toy drive is right around the corner! Today’s THV hosted a great kick-off for the school competition. We want to thank all of the schools who are participating this year!
We are excited and looking forward to seeing everybody at the 2011 STS toy drive!

More than a “Merry Little Christmas”!

December 23rd, 2010

Words cannot express how great this year’s toy drive was! Thanks to our generous communities, Stuff the Sleigh raised 12,341 toys and $36,075.05 in one week! It was a huge success! These toys were picked up by caseworkers who couldn’t believe their eyes! They were so thankful and excited that their foster children would be having a VERY merry Christmas! After 3 trips to Best Buy, we finally covered all of the teenagers’ wishes! That included 40+ IPOD Touches, 18 laptops, and bunches of PSPs, DSs, and cameras!
We want to say a BIG thanks to several of our partners:
Everett Pontiac, Buick, GMC-for the fabulous big red truck to carry our sleigh for the week!
Mystical Carpet Care & Restoration-for the use of their wonderful warehouse that we turned into toyland!
Middleton Heat & Air-for the big truck to transport our toys each morning!
PODS-for picking up toys from the schools and bringing them to our warehouse!
Walmart-for letting us “camp out” on their front doors each morning!
NLR First Assembly of God-for choosing us as their non-profit to partner with again this year. From Pastor Randy being there in the mornings with us to greet those who came by, to the generous love offering from Christmas Lane, we were overwhelmed by your generosity.
Telcoe Credit Union-for keeping us company each morning with the RV!
Alice 107.7 (Heather and DC)-for hanging out with us to help spread the word!
Today’s THV (TOM AND ALLISON!)-for braving the cold with us each morning to make sure people knew we were there!

We are grateful for ALL of the VOLUNTEERS who came and helped us count and sort the toys each morning-you were all lifesavers!

We hope you have a Merrier Christmas knowing that foster children in Arkansas will have a little Christmas magic thanks to YOU!

What a Week So Far!

December 9th, 2010

Whew! What a crazy, wonderful, fast-paced week we’ve had so far! We just finished up counting and sorting the toys received this morning in Conway, plus half of the toys that PODS picked up from the schools. A HUGE thanks to the National Honor Society from CAC who came out to help! We couldn’t have done it without you! (Actually, we’d still be there up to our knees in toys!)
Tomorrow’s the last day and should be a great finale to a greater week!
Hope to see you there at the Walmart on Bowman in Little Rock!

A New Partner!

December 1st, 2010

Toy Up and Stuff the Sleigh!

Toy Up, the toy store on Bowman Curve in Little Rock, has teamed up with Stuff the Sleigh!
Now through December 9th, you can purchase any items at Toy Up for 20% off and immediately donate them to Stuff the Sleigh by leaving it with their elves for delivery.
It’s a great way to give for the holidays!

Santa’s Comin’!

November 16th, 2010

We are so excited to have North Little Rock’s First Assembly of God on board with us again this year! Their event, “Christmas Lane” is awesome, and we are so thankful to benefit from their offering that weekend! That means more toys for foster children!
We’re also excited about our new partner, Telcoe Federal Credit Union. Stop by their locations to see how you can help Stuff the Sleigh!

As we get closer to the toy drive, we realize how many people give their time and talents to make Stuff the Sleigh’s annual toy drive happen. Jason and I couldn’t do it alone! It takes a bunch of elves! 🙂

It’s Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas!

October 25th, 2010

Can you believe it’s time for another STS toy drive?
We’ve been busy planning behind the scenes for our 2010 toy drive for Arkansas’ foster children. This year will be our 9th year to provide Christmas presents for children in foster care here in Arkansas. We want to say another BIG thank you to the individuals, sponsors, and volunteers who helped us make our 2009 toy drive a huge success! We couldn’t have done it without you!
As usual, the toy drive will be the first full week of December, which is December 6-10 this year. We’re hoping to be able to give even more Christmas to more foster children this year than ever before! We’ll keep you posted on details and events as we get closer to the big week. Go ahead and spread the word! The 2010 Stuff the Sleigh toy drive is just around the corner!
