Christ United Methodist Men’s toy project



By Tom Wynkoop, member of Christ UMC, Waynesboro, PA

Continuing their annual toy ministry, the Methodist Men’s group from Christ United Methodist Church in Waynesboro recently completed twenty-one wooden toy fire trucks. Measuring almost 18” long, each unit consists of twenty-three pieces, including two ladders, three figurines and six wheels. Materials for the project were donated by the local Lowes store and the twenty-one units required approximately sixty man hours to complete.

At a time closer to Christmas, the fire trucks will be delivered to Waynesboro Area Human and Community Resources organization for distribution to less fortunate children in the area.

This is the 25th year the men’s group has worked the toy Ministry. Plans are already underway for next year’s project.
