Our 3rd Annual Toy Drive

unnamed

If you want to sign up for our 3rd annual toy drive, go here and fill in the blocks beside the child you want to buy a toy for. You can then drop your toy off at our store (wrapped or unwrapped, either is fine), Shibe Vintage Sports on 13th and Walnut, and get 25% off anything in the store in return for your kindness…or if you’d prefer to get it shipped there, the address is:

Shibe Sports
137 South 13th Street
Phila, PA 19107

If you choose to just mail it, let me know and I’ll send you a discount code so you can shop from the store online. Please have the gift arrive by December 22nd. 

The organization that organizes the toy drive is PPEHRC, who does terrific work for the poor and homeless in Philadelphia and elsewhere. You can also help them by hating Dallas….click here to find out how.  Thanks a million in advance for your generosity!
