I received an email about a woman in the SW Metro that has several large tubs of Beanie Babies that she would like to donate to military service members children. They are new and/or in like new condition and belonged to the woman’s daughter who is now at school and no longer wants them. I’m hoping that others would be willing/wanting to take some so we can get them to military families, my contact information is below. The donor wants to see them gone soon so time is short as they may end up at Goodwill. Thank you!
