Toy drive to replace toys lost in fire for families in need

Dallas – An early morning fire partially destroyed an office and toys gathered for donation at the Asante apartment complex. Now, Councilmember Tennell Atkins is encouraging the community to join him in helping to replace the toys ahead of the holidays.

Quest 4 Greater Success, a local non-profit, originally gathered the toys for a holiday giveaway for more than 50 families in need.

Assata Thomas, director of the non-profit, issued a plea to help them replace what was lost in the fire.

Councilmember Atkins is asking people to help the non-profit by donating new toys for the families at the Janie C. Turner Recreation Center. The toy drive will begin at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, December 13, and continue through Friday, December 15.

The toys will then be donated to the original families in need on Saturday, December 16, at Asante Apartments beginning at 9 a.m. to noon. The hope is to get enough toys to replace those that were lost.
