The 17th Annual AlignLife Toy Drive will be held from December 1-12th in the Metro Centre, located at 4700 N University in Peoria. This event was a chance for members of the community to donate toys to benefit children from local families affected by COVID19. Alignlife teamed up with Cool Tech Heating & Cooling, Merle Norman, Le Bakery, and Mega Replay to provide toys for local children and coupons from local small businesses. AlignLife was able to donate over $250 worth of toys. Every person that donated received a package of coupons and gift certificates from local small businesses as a thank you gift for their participation. “This year COVID has affected more than just our health. We have had families who have been out of work or had hours cut and have had to make some tough decisions on whether to pay rent or buy Christmas presents for their children. We have children who have been cut-off from their friends and families who are stressed with no outlets due to closures and lockdowns. Play is essential to development in children and our community needed help, so we stepped up to help relieve that burden for 53 local children”, says Dr. Andrea Schnowske, the small business owner and chiropractor at AlignLife. Dr. Andrea Schnowske has been hosting toy drives and helping with fundraising events benefitting local charities for over 8 years. As part of this event she donated over $1000 in free services in her office to those that participated in the toy drive.
