Thanks to James Gattas from James Gattas Jewelers for joining us as a celebrity reindeer in 2017! James Gattas Jewelers has supported Toy Truck for a number of years and is a true champion of early childhood programming. As part of Toy Truck each year, and continuing for 2017, donors of $50+ will receive a ticket to go in store and draw for their chance to win stunning diamond jewelry valued at $3,500. Every ticketholder will receive a gemstone valued up to $100 that can be mounted into a beautiful custom piece of jewelry for you or a loved one, with one lucky ticketholder winning the grand prize. Watch the video below to learn more about why James and his team are asking for your help in making a difference in Memphis -
"We have been partners and supporters with Porter-Leath and of Toy Truck for many years now. Porter-Leath has been in Memphis and Shelby County for over a century and a lot of people aren't familiar with Porter-Leath. The main thing they do is early education. They take care of the kids, and how important it is for their future development that they get all of the support that they get from Porter-Leath! It's such a great time to support these children during Toy Truck." - James Gattas
James asks that you help Porter-Leath during Toy Truck. The agency's Preschool program serves 6,000 students ages birth to five, and ensures that they are academically ready for kindergarten, developing physically, socially, and emotionally, and that their parents receive the services they need as well.
