This winter marks the sixth consecutive year of Project CAFÉ’s Gently Used Toy Shop, and my second year of participation in the project. The event’s goal is to help families stretch their holiday dollars by collecting very gently used toys and ensuring that they are Christmas-ready. Every year, the event has grown both in donations and attendance. This year, collection is taking place from Nov. 5 to Dec. 8, with donation sites at Common Grounds and area schools and churches, and the event itself is fro, 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14.
