DeKalb is on a mission once again to collaborate with Toys for Tots and make children happy through its annual Country Music Show Toy Drive. Now in its 48th year, all the toys that will be collected during the show will be donated to the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army, an international charity organization, and a Protestant Christian movement consists of over 1.5 million members made up of officers, soldiers, and adherents otherwise called Salvationists. The organization will be responsible for distributing the toys to the underprivileged children in the area.
What should the audience expect from this year’s Country Music Show Toy Drive?
This year, the show will be hosted by Gary Mullis, a DeKalb-based singer-songwriter who was recently inducted into the VIP Songwriters Hall of Fame. The Country Music Show Toy Drive will be held on December 3, Sunday, at 507 E. Taylor St. Plaza High Rise Community Room in DeKalb, Illinois. It will run from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p,m. Instead of tickets, attendees must bring 1 new unwrapped toy to get an admission.
Aside from an abundance of great country music, attendees can also expect a wonderful mix of gospel, bluegrass, and some feel-good holiday tracks to be performed by both local and regional singers.
In 2015, DeKalb’s Country Music Show Toy Drive, which was held at The House Café was able to collect a total of over 200 toys. This made the charity show a huge success. It was B95’s Brian Adams who hosted the show then. Hopefully, this year’s show will yield the same amount of toys; or better yet, exceed the achievements of the preceding performances. The more toys collected means more children will be happy and a greater number of people will be aware of this wonderful cause.
Christmas truly becomes more meaningful when we celebrate it through spreading love, joy, and kindness to others especially those in need. It makes the holidays warmer, and our smiles brighter and more heartfelt.
