This just in from PSWCS:
The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (http://www.pswcs.com) is pleased to announce our fourth annual charity toy drive to benefit Garrison Carida (http://www.garrisoncarida.com) of the 501st Legion. Why do we collect Star Wars toys for Garrison Carida? It's because Carida does so many good things with them. You see, Carida distributes these toys when they armor up and visit children's hospitals all around the Mid-Atlantic region. Nothing brings a smile to these kids' faces like going up to a Stormtrooper, getting a hug, and going away with a new action figure.
While many members of Carida donate their own toys to the cause, it's just not enough to cover all the visits they make throughout the year. So they rely on the generosity of collectors like you to give them a toy or two so they can complete their missions. We at PSWCS take great pride in our work to help in the collection effort. This year we've organized three live collection events. The first will be held at the Pittsburgh Toyshow (http://www.pittsburghtoyshow.com/) December 2nd & 3rd at the Monroeville Expo Mart. The second will be held at Toy Cave (http://www.thetoycave.net/) in Carlisle PA on December 9th. And the final event will be held at Essential Comics (http://www.essentialcomics.com/) in Exeter PA on December 16th. A compliment of Carida troopers will be on-hand for all three events, so please bring your cameras. If you cannot attend one of the events, we also gladly accept donations by mail.
