Skiff donates bikes, helmets to Toys for Tots

Steve Long recently oversaw the donation of two brand-new bicycles with accompanying helmets to Adam Swihart for Toys for Tots. Swihart is a representative of AFSCME Central Iowa Local, a major sponsor for Toys for Tots. The bicycles were originally purchased as the top prizes in the Grand Prize Game at the recent Skiff fundraiser Santa’s Workshop.  Although the game was a hit, ultimately no child was able to land all of their ping pong balls consecutively in the six buckets; rather than returning the bicycles to the store, the decision was made to donate them so that they would still benefit area children.
