Kasey's Gift Toy Drive

Kasey's Gift Toy Drive was established 11 years ago to honor the memory of Debbie and Dave Pound’s niece, Kasey Burleson, by her family.  She died at the age of 16, from injuries suffered in a car accident in November of 2005.

She loved to take toys to the local firehouse before Christmas each year; and in her memory, her family decided to start this toy drive to help others.  In the last 11 years, we have collected thousands of items, including toys, bikes/helmets, and clothes, which were distributed to organizations like Nationwide Children's Hospital, Channel 4 Firefighters of Columbus, Salvation Army, Channel 6 Toys for Tots, and Ronald McDonald House.  We also reached out in the last few years to connect with Northwest Chapel’s Home Team Missions ministry for Perry County.

If you would like to help with the toy drive itself, the date is Saturday, November 10th.  Please contact us at the above addresses.

We will continue to take toy donations at Northwest Chapel through Sunday, December 9th.  There will be a collection box in the Commons area to drop off new toys or children’s clothing.

Event Leader: Dave and Debbie Pound, 614-264-1632 / 614-632-6403
