How did you become involved with the Toy Chest?

I became introduced to the Toy Chest through a dear friend that was already a member of the charity. After attending a meeting, I discovered their purpose, goals & mission and the rest is history!

What inspires you to make a difference?

My faith, family & to be able to make a difference in someone’s life, especially children.

What are you doing to “Be Relevant” in the community?

Priscilla & I are currently working with the Domestic Abuse Shelters, delivering bags from the Toy Chest. At our annual Dream & Fairytales Event, Priscilla & I are in charge of the “Toy Chest Store”.

Things you may not know about me:

I cherish my faith, family & friends. I think that each & every one of them is a gift from God and that we are his hands extended. I enjoy being able to assist or aid anyone. I focus on the words Christ spoke “When you do it unto the lest of these you do it as unto me”.
