Help Fill an Ambulance With Gifts for Christmas Wish and Tornado Victims in Owensboro, Kentucky
A toy collection will be held in conjunction with AMR of Owensboro/Daviess County, Meijer, and Christmas Wish on Saturday in Owensboro. Air-Evac will land a helicopter, and Santa will be on hand for photo opportunities. Let's fill an ambulance with tons of Christmas spirit to help families in need this holiday season!
We're not sure how many toys will fit inside an ambulance, but coming up on Saturday we're about to find out! AMR of Owensboro/Daviess County will be set up outside of Meijer in Owensboro for a Christmas Wish/Tornado Toy Drive. Come out on Saturday, December 18th, 2021 from 9 AM until 2 PM for a beautiful day of giving. The goal is to stuff an ambulance with Christmas gifts to help those in need. It's been a tough year for many of our Kentucky neighbors. It's been a tough week for many who were affected by the tornados that swept through communities all over Western Kentucky. They need our help to ensure that their children have a very merry Christmas.
Air-Evac will land a helicopter which the children will love looking at! Santa will also be on hand for photos and to hear those Christmas wishes. So, please help us fill an ambulance with new unwrapped toys or donations to make the season bright for those that need it the most!
Most Needed and Most Wanted
If you need some help deciding which toys we need the most, this list will help a lot. Below are the Top 30 toys that have been requested so far. Because we know what we've purchased throughout the year, I added a note to let you know which items that we are low on and need the most. Last year we handed out over 30,000 toys, hundreds of winter jackets, gloves/mittens, along with hundreds of diapers, to put it all in perspective.
Thank you in advance for helping these children have the best Christmas of their lives!
