You can help with this noble effort by contributing toys or money. Gifts should not be in a value greater than $10.00. Trucks and cars for the boys and color books and crayons for girls are always good. Puzzles are an excellent gift as well. Toys can be left at Giuseppi’s Café on Freemont. Be sure to put Barbs name on anything that you leave. Checks can be sent to Barbara Olszewski (made out to her) at P. O. Box 695, Lukeville, AZ 85341.
