The local Edward Jones branch teams who have been collecting toys for Toys for Tots wanted to thank the entire Ahwatukee Foothills community for its support of this great cause over the last nine years that Edward Jones has been collecting toys at its 10 Ahwatukee-area offices.
The Foothills Ladies Golf Club collected more than 50 Toys for Tots at its annual golf and lunch outing. Forty members participated at the Foothills Golf Club where they play each Tuesday. Members of the Christmas committee pictured here are Connie Brown, Connie Modeer, Vy Armour, Bonnie Spanier and Shelly Meagher.
When I hear the words “Holiday Spirit” I get a flood of great memories and an eagerness to continue traditions of giving. I can remember, when I was younger, the day after Thanksgiving we would start decorating for the upcoming Christmas holiday. I loved hanging the lights outside with my dad, drinking hot cocoa, watching holiday movies, trimming the tree with family and friends, shopping for that perfect present to bestow on someone.
An Ahwatukee Foothills family and local school came up with a
unique way to support the troops overseas. For the past few weeks,
third-grader Luke Brocco and his family collected Beanie Babies to
send to the military in Afghanistan.

The Ahwatukee area Edward Jones financial advisors have joined
together to support the U.S. Marine's Toys for Tots program by
using their offices as drop-off locations for this year's toy
drive. Local residents may help needy children in the area by
bringing in a new, unwrapped toy to any Ahwatukee area office
during regular business hours beginning Nov. 15.
