Freedom Riders A.B.A.T.E. Toy Drive

December 13, 2017

The Freedom Riders A.B.A.T.E. of Illinois is accepting donations of new, unopened, un-giftwrapped  toys in hopes of making the Holiday Season a little brighter for community children. Toys can be dropped off at the Shoppers Weekly Papers office located at 301 E. Broadway in Centralia, Illinois, or you can inquire within about making a cash donation. Cash donations will go towards the purchase of toys.

In years past, The Freedom Riders have helped as many as 650 children in the community.

Donors will receive a coupon that’s good for a free classified ad in the Shoppers Weekly Paper to be used any time as a way of saying thanks.

Pictured here is Kylie Foltz of Centralia, daughter of Nick and Lisa. Kylie was delighted to donate a Power Rangers Morphin Megazord which she brought to the front window of the Shoppers Weekly on Thursday afternoon. Very much in the spirit of holiday generosity, she  asked Shoppers Weekly staff if she could make a cash donation from her penny bank. Merry Christmas, Kylie!
