Local folks can make a child's holiday wish come true by donating a new toy or book to the Toy Lift. This annual holiday event began in 1989 when founder Tom Powell decided to perch himself 80 feet up in a bucket truck until people donated 1,000 toys, which he then distributed to local children in need. Toy Lift has grown into a huge annual community event with festival activities, entertainment, and thousands of toys and books donated. Fashion Square Mall. email@example.com. 975-8697.
