Warehouse Space Needed for Share-A-Christmas Toy Distribution

Share-A-Christmas 2014 is underway, and your help is urgently needed for this to be a successful year!

Space for toy distribution has not yet been secured, and we are asking for the public’s help with finding a suitable location. The space must be a minimum of 10,000 square feet, be handicapped accessible, have plenty of parking, have electric and heat, and be available for the month of December.

If you own or lease a warehouse or similar building and would like to make it available for this countywide program, please call T4C Director Louise Worsham at 330-343-6012.

A Dover or New Philadelphia location is preferable as that is where the majority of the Share-A-Christmas recipients live, but we will consider all locations.

This message is brought to you by the people who make the Toy Drive possible – WJER Radio.

Geib Givebacks Grow by $450 after Week Two of High School Football

For the past three football seasons, the Geib Funeral Homes sponsored "Geib Givebacks" in WJER's Dover and New Philadelphia football broadcasts.
Each week, the Tornadoes and Quakers played for a group within their school systems, with $25 for each touchdown going to that week's selected group. This season, Geib Givebacks return but with a twist.

Now, Dover and New Philadelphia will work together to score one big Geib Giveback donation for a Tuscarawas County organization. For every touchdown scored, the donation will grow by $25, with the season-ending total awarded to a group selected by the public.

To participate, log on to the Geib Facebook page, and nominate a Tuscarawas County organization deserving of the donation. It can be a church or school group, civic organization, club, or non-profit deserving of the award. Starting with kickoff each Friday and going through Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., nominations will be taken and voted on. Each week, the group with the most Facebook votes will go onto the final ballot. Then be sure to come back and vote for the winner from 9 finalists during Dover-Phila Week.

So what are you waiting for? Log on to Facebook and nominate your favorite local organization to go into the running for this season's Geib Giveback award! The current total is $450, and it will grow with every touchdown. The first two finalists are the NP South Elementary PTO, and Otterbein United Methodist Church. It's the Geib way of giving back to the communities they serve.
