For our annual golf league Christmas party, instead of exchanging
gifts we pick a charitable organization to donate to. This year
the R.J. Scheffel Memorial Toy Project was chosen by the golf
league. Enclosed you will find our contribution to your organization.
Our best wishes to all your volunteers for a Merry Christmas
and our thanks to them for making the lives of children a little

Congratulations to everyone at the R.J. Scheffel Memorial Toy
Project for securing a grant from the Capital Region Community
Foundation! This investment is a result of the important work
you have already done and is indicative of the trust that the
R.J. Scheffel Memorial Toy Project has earned. It is my hope
that this grant provides you with the resources necessary to
continue your valuable service to our community..

My brother, Bob Herbst, volunteers in your workshop several days
a week. On a recent visit in September, he brought me (his sister)
with him on a day to help with the toys. I was very impressed
with the variety of projects being worked on and the friendliness
of all those in the shop. In fact, I even had the chance to help
paint trucks and assemble cars.
Please accept this
contribution in honor of Bob, and put it to good use. Bob has
really enjoyed helping out in the shop.
Warmest wishes to all you for a very Merry Christmas! You are
such dedicated volunteers making a Christmas so wonderful for
those thousands of children.
Please accept this donation in the name of Larry and Louise Koster
of Lansing, Michigan.

This contribution is from a client of mine.
Every year he gives me gift certificates for restaurants, stores,
etc. This year, I asked him not to give anything. So, he wrote
this check to the Scheffel Toy Project instead. How cool is that?!
See you soon.
