Christmas this year and witnessed the number of families getting toys
for there children . Tyler's Mission was the Gaston County representative for the TOYS FOR TOTS program this year and has worked with the Marines for the past few years.
I have watch Tyler's Mom pull food from her own freezer to feed families who show up at the house needing food.
I myself have taken food to stock so that there is food to take to a needy family or to be given to a family that shows up for help.
Never in the 13 years I have known this child and his family have I witness anything underhanded, no scams, etc. Yes, someone who
writes or knows about writing grants is needed but for now this mission is being run by donations only. Most of the donations come from family, friends, and volunteers.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I visited them in December to deliver some computer work. They were over run with clients picking up toys for their children. These parents were not just walking out with one toy, they had a bag of toys, a bag of candy, and a bag of toiletry items.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find an available space to be used year round , set up network with other organization, apply for grant
