Don't forget to take your kids through Disney Lane! It's a decorated neighborhood with themed houses. My kids LOVE it. It is on Old Father rd, in between Ina and Cortaro. It's a must! :)

The spirit of giving

I love this, and have been wanting to post this. I love that they take used toys! I know I have a few (well more than a few) that are in fantastic shape, and could donate.

Here's the info:

It's called Santa's Workshop which has been in existence for 24 years.  As we have done in the past, we're collecting new and USED toys and clothes as well as food, diapers, blankets, hygiene items and household items.  This year we have teamed up with Casa Maria, The Marana Food Bank and The Foothills Mall.  The Foothills Mall has been kind enough to donate an empty store during our collection period to use as a drop-off location and warehouse to clean, repair, and send-off the donations.  

Santa's Workshop opens November 26th (black friday) and will be open during mall business hours until Dec. 20th.  It is located at the Foothills Mall between thefood court and Barnes and Noble.

The needs this year are far greater than in past year's, so we are hoping the donations will be greater as well to meet those needs.  What is unique about Santa's Workshop is that we accept used toys and clothes-- everyone can give something they have grown out of, quit playing with, got tired of etc...  These toys and clothes are cleaned and repaired and given to organizations around town like Casa Maria, a Soup Kitchen in South Tucson, which feeds 600 individuals and 250 families everyday!  
Santa's Workshop at the Foothills Mall will also be holding activities and performances during the day and evenings for a minimal ticket price with all proceeds benefiting Santa's Workshop, Casa Maria Soup Kitchen and The Marana Food Bank.

Please come and support Santa's Workshop by:
--Donating: New or used toys or clothes; Blankets; Food; Diapers; Household items; Hygiene items
--Come and see a show or take part in a daily activity or art and crafts
--Please pass this information along to everyone you know
--Donations also accepted at all Tucson Pizza Hut and Macayo's Mexican Kitchen locations.
