Building Committee Moving Forward With New Facility
The Building Program Committee wants to bring all the members of Lone Star Santas up to speed on the latest Building Program news. We are in the middle of one of the GREATEST efforts to help us to better respond to our mission of Convoy of Toys Disaster Relief for Children. Most of you know Santa Jim Fletcher been graciously donating the use of his property for storing toys and trailers since the inception of LSS. The organization has also been renting multiple storage facilities in Princeton, Houston and Waxahachie, Texas to store our trailers, equipment and donated toys. To help us better serve our designated regions when a disaster strikes, the building committee has been working hard to find a centralized area within the State of Texas and have several specific locations under consideration. Our new Convoy of Toys® Storage Facility will serve as a meeting place, to store our trailers, to inventory donated toys, provide a venue to sort toys and load the trailers. We plan to pay for this facility with donations designated only for building funds. There are currently an estimated 400 members in Lone Star Santas. If each member was able to donate $100.00, this would gather about $40,000.00, and along with other donations previously made, bring us close to our current goal. All tax deductible donations to the Building Fund are appreciated and are kept confidential. Members who make an investment of $250.00 or more will have the the opportunity to have a personalized Paver Brick placed on the Donor’s Walkway around the new facility. These Paver Bricks also make a great gift and wonderful way to celebrate and honor someone special in your life. You can donate at LoneStarSantas.org/buildingfund. We hope we can count on your support of this important worthwhile effort and contribution to the future of Lone Star Santas Charities Inc. and Convoy of Toys.
