What do they all have in common?
They can all be toys!!!
It’s time for InterConnect’s Annual Christmas Toy Drive. InterConnect has hosted a toy drive for the Como Community Center for 6 years now.The Como Community Center was built in 1970, and is located just 2 miles from InterConnect Wiring, which puts them in InterConnect’s immediate community! Their after-school program has been in existence for over 20 years, and between 120 and 140 students participate annually. Additionally, Como is the only community center in Fort Worth that has a track and field team, as well as pee-wee football and cheerleading leagues.
Among the many other programs it offers, the center provides an evening meal program daily, a weekend food program and a Mobile Pantry initiative, which is done in collaboration with Tarrant Area Food Bank and is held every third Friday. It also provides assistance to low-income individuals.
A very large box is located in our main lobby at 5024 W. Vickery Blvd, Fort Worth, TX, for anyone who would like to donate. Just bring an unwrapped toy between 8am-4pm Monday – Thursday, from now until December 21st. Como Community Center is just 2 miles from InterConnect Wiring, which puts them in InterConnect’s immediate community.
Helping the community is one of InterConnect’s greatest joys! Come by and drop off a toy if you can! We would love to fill the box FULL of toys for the children.
