Rush For Kids 2011 held Thanksgiving night into Black Friday
Rush Township police and Hometown Fire Company are working together to hold their first ever Rush For Kids 2011 overnight toy collection event Thanksgiving night into Black Friday outside the Hometown Walmart. The 10-hour event consists of a toy collection and boot drop, all to benefit the Schuylkill Carbon Marine Corps League's Toys For Tots campaign. The event will start at 9 p.m. and end at 7 a.m. Everyone is encouraged to come out and help make a difference for the kids for the holiday season by either donating a new toy or placing a monetary donation in a boot, which will be used to buy toy donations for local families. Organizers stated, "If anyone is unable to make it to the event, donations can also be dropped off at either the Hometown Fire Company or Rush Township Municipal Building prior to Dec. 10.
