Toy, Book, and Mitten Drive

Lake Country Family Fun’s Toy, Book, and Mitten Drive

In conjunction with Lake Country Family Fun’s Shop Small Guide, we will be facilitating a toy, book, and mitten drive at nine of the local businesses featured in the Shop Small Guide. Lake Country Family Fun loves to support small businesses which enrich our communities, and local charities that enrich and benefit our communities, as well.

What charity is this drive supporting?

This drive is for the Christmas Clearing Council of Waukesha County. The Christmas Clearing Council of Waukesha County (CCC) promotes and coordinates giving to families in need during the Christmas season. They provide a clearinghouse that matches these families with area groups, families, businesses, and individuals who wish to help people less fortunate on a person-to-person basis. In 2015, they coordinated giving to more than 1,900 families and nearly 4,500 children in Waukesha County. What a blessing and amazing resource for our families and neighbors!
