Get Involved didn't make it into the paper this week, but here's what we were going to share, two toy drives worthy of your support:
Donate new toys, new or used bikes (kids’ especially needed), canned veggies and fruit, turkeys, hams, coats, gloves and hats to this annual drive that helps bring the holidays to needy Pikes Peak region families. This year’s giveaway will be held Dec. 21, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Freedom Financial Services Expo Center. Volunteers are also needed to sort donations. Go online for drop-off information and more.
