Paige:

Well now, how sad is that?

Broad River:

Very sad for the ( other ) children. As for the women it speaks to a deplorability I have never understood.
Saddest is my suspicion that they took those toys to give to their children, probably of which would have received a toy from the same source.
This happens everywhere, every year. Food bins, clothes bins, toy bins.

At City Hall at least, you'd think they would place the bin inside an office door or behind the Help Desk counter.

It'll happen again somewhere before Christmas !
Toys for Tots is my usual drop off destination. Semper Fi !

Missed you, you silver tongued advocate of Justice and the American way.

Paige:

I'll make a point of picking up something for the bin.

Does anyone know exactly where the bin is located in City Hall and whether the gifts need to be wrapped before they are donated? Also, how long will the bin be there?

Broad - I just finished up a major project and still tying up details, details and more details. Have a great Christmas and terrific New Year! Nollaig Shona agus Athbhliain faoi mhaise daoibn!

Broad River:

The toys may be dropped off at City Hall, 125 East Avenue, the Registrars office on the first floor, and unwrapped is preferred, Mon-Fri, 8:30 – 4:30 and the Marines will be picking them up this week, I believe on Wednesday.
