BFSRA CARES! Help the Salvation Army help our communities!
For the past six years, BFSRA has been a proud supporter of the Salvation Army in its annual Toy Drive. Although we won't be able to enjoy each other's company, or the music of Mary Lou and Stevie, or the delicious luncheon celebrating the holiday season, we WILL be able to experience the joy of bringing joy to others. These pictures show just two of the tables that held the generous BFSRA donations of toys last year.
On Monday, November 23, please bring toy donations to the First United Methodist Church, 2 S. Dayton Street, Kennewick between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.. The Benton Franklin School Retirees Association (BFSRA) will use the church’s covered drive-through area and the foyer on the south side of the church property for toy collection during the two hour collection. At 1:00 p.m. the Salvation Army will arrive and take the collected toys.
Notes from our President:
Now is a great time to shop for school supplies and Christmas items for S.H.A.K.E. and our Salvation Army collection. You may drop off your items on Monday, November 23, 2020 from 11-1 at the First United Methodist Church in Kennewick. We will receive school supplies on the same day for our January date. If you need help, we will be happy to pick-up from your home and see that your items are included with the collection on that Monday by the Salvation Army representatives and school supplies. School supplies will be delivered by me to Maureen Bell for distribution to schools in the new year and could possibly be used sooner with elementary students starting school this month.
Let's make this a happy time for our families and community. We appreciate whatever you are able to contribute. Call if you need assistance. 509-627-7364 for Victoria or any of our officers/Executive Board.
