🤸🏽♂️ Thanks for celebrating National Gymnastics Day
Thanks for celebrating National Gymnastics Day with Gem City on 9/16! We had lots of people tag the gym in posts, and we had lots of preschoolers show us their coloring sheets! Our athletes had fun all week long as we took pictures and videos of them to share with you all on social media!
🎁 Drop Off Toy Donations at Gem City Until the First Week of December
We are excited to announce that we will be a Toys for Tots drop off location this year! The box will be dropped off the week of October 1 and be here until it fills OR until the first week in December! The goal is to fill the box with new (unopened) toys! (Please don’t gift wrap the presents.) I am emailing you the logo to use that they sent me.
We hope to help with their Christmas Campaign Toy Drive! Last year Toys for Tots was able to distribute over 19,000 toys/stocking stuffers/books to 3,037 within West Central Illinois, and they anticipate even more this year! Please consider bringing in a toy or book in October or November.
