Do Something Great for Kids at The Meltdown on 30A Sept. 13

September 8, 2014 by SoWal Staff

Do something great for kids! You can donate needed items by dropping them at The Meltdown on 30A in Seaside on September 13 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The Meltdown on 30A will be giving away a voucher for one free grilled sandwich per drop off.

The Meltdown on 30A will be working with Okaloosa-Walton Macaroni Kid and other community partners to help Families First Network collect the items needed to redecorate the family play room in Fort Walton Beach. This room is used daily by children and is in desperate need of a makeover. Together we can make a difference in the lives of children who have been affected by abuse or neglect. Families First Network provides foster care and related services for area children.

The Meltdown will be accepting donations all day on Sept. 13 (8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.). Please drop off new or gently used items such as:

Diapers, new underwear, socks all sizes, new or gently used coats, clothing, shoes, toys, games, puzzles, books, DVDs, an entertainment center, Barbie dolls and accessories, and trains for a train table that was donated. Also in need of baby equipment: A changing table, swing, bouncy seat, excersaucer, etc.

The Meltdown is asking individuals and businesses to pull together and make donations of items and their time to make this room a great place for abused and neglected children to play. This project comes with a $0 budget. It is a community project and will be as big as the hearts in our community.

Remember, donated items can be dropped off on Saturday, September 13 at The Meltdown on 30A located on airstream row in the heart of Seaside!
