Lucas Oil Center was proud to partner with The Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Evansville District Council and WIKY 104 FM for the 3rd annual Ton of Toys-Toy Drive.
And thanks to everyone who made a donation, it was a BIG year! Guessing from the number of boxes and the weight of the toys/games inside we did collect at least a literal ton of toys. According to Joe Cook, Executive Director of The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, they collected more toys this year than the last two years, combined!
From Monday, November 23 to Saturday, December 12, new and unwrapped toys were collected at both the East Side and West Side Lucas Oil Center locations. Children of families in need, under the age of 18 could be registered for participation. Recipients of toys resided in Gibson, Posey, Vanderburgh or Warrick counties.
