The second part of the toy drive, the distribution of the toys to the children at the Our Lady of the Lake hospital, happened on December 15th, 2007. The 501st joined us again to help hand everything out. With Lord Vader to oversee things and Santa-trooper to check the list twice - everything should go smoothly. Everyone had a great time – especially the kids!
Afterwards, we headed to Raising Cane’s to eat then to the library to celebrate with our own Christmas party. Everyone there got a limited “Red Stick Rebellion Toy Drive 2007” DVD - a way to tank everyone for coming. Plus everyone got to play in the Dirty Vader gift exchange game and compete for prizes playing some old-school and new-school Star Wars games – congratulations to all of our winners!
We would like to thank everyone who made this a great event for the children including the 501st, our members, K.B. Toys, Raising Canes, WAFB, OLOL and especially all of you who donated! All told, we received more than 270 toys that were either handed out or donated to Toys for Tots - without you there wouldn’t have been an event to begin with so THANK YOU and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
