Area Restaurants Get Donations For Toys For Children With Cancer

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Staff from area restaurants were hard at work Saturday...Not cooking up a meal, but in support of a local charity.

Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and Longhorn Steakhouse in Salisbury used their annual employee flag-football game to raise money, awareness, and donations for the organization "Toys For Children With Cancer," which works to bring joy to kids and their families battling the disease.

"So that when the children come in to get their chemo or their blood counts or whatever they have to go through...they know that afterwards they get to go to the treasure box and select a toy 55:49  so, it really helps to get them through their treatment," says Julie Daum, who runs Toys For Children With Cancer.

Corey Speight, Service Manaer from Red Lobster says he found out about the charity, by simply doing his job one day, "I talked to one of my customers, Julie, and she was telling about an organization...toys for children with cancer, and I wanted to see if there was a way that maybe we could implement something, where we can donate something."

They estimate about *50* toys were collected.  If you would like to donate to Toys For Children With Cancer, monetary donations and toys can be sent to the address below.
