Tradition continues with toy giveaway


Woodward, Okla. — HOW YOU CAN HELP

For those interested in helping provide a Christmas to all Woodward County children, there are several ways you can contribute to the Toy Giveaway.

"We take donations, both monetary as well as new or like new toys. They can bring them to Benbrook Agency on Main St. or Check Engine on Oklahoma Ave," Habekott said. "We also need volunteers to help on the set up date and as well as volunteers to be clerks on the day of the giveaway."

As someone who has been involved with the event for 2 decades himself, Habekott said he would encourage others to come out and lend a hand.

"After 20 years of working with the toy giveaway, I can tell you every event is a blessing. At every event you can witness God's grace, and it's been just as much a pleasure for me volunteering as it is for the children to receive the gifts," he said. "Anyone who'd like to have an enriching experience and feel the holy spirit should come out to volunteer."

For more information about how you can contribute to the Toy Giveaway, including how to become a volunteer, contact Mike Habekott at 256-1957.
