Jeffreys Toy Closet is collecting items for the Flood Victims of Broome County New York area The Binghamton New York and surrounding areas were hard hit with devastating flood damage from Tropical Storm Lee.

Jeffreys Toy Closet in conjunction with US Legends International is collecting needed items to send to the Broome County area.

 

Jeffrey Stanton, founder of Jeffreys Toy Closet was deeply saddened by the horrible news of so many families that lost everything. Jeffrey’s parents and grandparents are from the Broome County area. The images are just heart wrenching. Jeffrey asked US Legends International of they could help him collect up items and ship them to the area. Recently US Legends and Jeffreys Toy Closet sent stuff to the Joplin area after the horrific tornados.

.Items needed are baby food, formula, diapers, wipes, non perishable food, new undergarments, backpacks, pet food and supplies, toiletries, towels, blankets, clothes, school supplies, pillows, cleaning supplies or anything that you think a family that has just lost everything could use. Toys are also being collected..

Please continue to pray for the victims of the New York/Pennsylvania flooding. Many have lost entire homes and are without flood insurance. This is a depressed area of the country economically and its people are now facing a very difficult blow during an already difficult time.

Items may be brought to US Legends at either their store or at the hauler at Concord Speedway. Jeffrey Stanton Racing will also be collecting items. Jeffreys Toy Closet can also pick up items in the Concord-Charlotte-Salisbury area.

Mr. Mike Kivett was a avid fan of Jeff Gordon and Jeff Gordon’s Children’s Hospital. In fact was the place he said his goodbyes until we all meet in heaven someday again. Jeffrey just found it fitting that a toy drive in Mike’s memory for all of the love he shown Jeffrey and so many others especially his children Tyler and Ashley Kivett along with all of his family members and friends and would carry on the joy of new toys for kids who are sick or in need. Jeffreys Toy Closet can’t begin to thank the many people who help him bring joy to kids throughout the Charlotte area and across the USA with great toy donations.

Jeffrey’s Toy Closet becomes a legal charity

On March 25th, 2010, Jeffreys Toy Closet jumped up another step in helping kids have happiness!

After spending a few hours at Rowan County Office of Deeds and also at Wells Fargo Bank. Jeffrey and his parents filled out multiple paperwork and applications for the trade name, tax exempt status and also the non for profit applications to the federal government as a charity. Up until now Jeffrey used his own funds and savings to buy toys for kids not as fortunate as himself. Now as a charity, Jeffrey’s Toy Closet will now be able to help even more kids and their families.

Jeffrey’s Toy Closet also started a INEX DRIVER Racers Fund for any Inex Driver that gets seriously injured, sick or has a great need. Founder jeffrey Stanton had been saving for a new laptop gaming computer for himself, but decided that a Racer Fund for his fellow Inex racers would be a better choice for spending his saved money. In addition his dad, Mark Stanton gave Jeffrey some money to add to it in memory of jeffrey’s Grandparents: Vasta Ditta, Helen and Clarence Stanton and in honor of his grand-father Tony Ditta. This week, Jeffrey’s Toy Closet already has been able to reach out to 2 different INEX Drivers and help them with their specific needs. Contact Jeffrey’s Toy Closet if you know of any INEX Driver that becomes Injured or severely sick or has a great need.

Jeffreys Toy Closet founder Jeffrey Stanton would like to share his great news in a Talk Fusion Video that he made his new video app. that is helping both Jeffrey’s Toy Closet and Jeffrey Stanton Racing.
