TW of Slap Ya Mama

Tony “TW” Walker building toy boxes

Holiday season is always a time of giving and that holds true here, at Slap Ya Mama.  Over the past couple of years we have held a toy drive at our annual Slap Ya Mama Christmas Party.  Each person attending our party was required to bring a new toy with them for the toy drive.  We would then collect all these toys and donate them to our local church.  It was a great success and we would usually donate anywhere from 100 to 150 toys to the church, who would then distribute them to those children in need around Evangeline Parish.  Everyone was satisfied with the outcome but we felt like we could do something a little more.

This year we have created “Mama’s Toy Box” to help facilitate the gathering of toys for the children of Evangeline Parish.  Our father, TW, hand built 11 toy boxes and stamped them with our “Mama’s Toy Box” logo.  He and our mother, Jennifer, distributed them to 11 designated locations throughout Ville Platte, LA.  The toy boxes will be available to collect toys until December 14th.  So please, if you’re in the Evangeline Parish area, pass by one of the listed designated spots around Ville Platte and make a toy donation to Mama’s Toy Box.

We have once again partnered with the First Baptist Church of Ville Platte and they will be distributing the toys to the in need children of Evangeline Parish.  Daniel Holsomback, the Associate Pastor of First Baptist Church of Ville Platte, had this to say about the distribution of toys, “Our goal is to help as many children as possible with a dire need.  We compile our list of children based on information we receive from the Evangeline Parish School Board Office as well as from some of our own investigation.

With your donation and the help of our partners, we feel as though we will be able to provide many many children with a joyful Christmas this holiday season.  Thank you in advance for your help and we wish everyone the Merriest of Christmases!
