Toys delight inner-city kids

Dear Editor:Thank you to everyone who helped with the Inner City Toy Project. Everyone’s generosity was very much appreciated. Those who live in the inner city live a life totally different from the life we live here in Aspen. Very few of the people there have VCRs, or CD or DVD players. They know very little about the electronic world. Most of the people and children speak Spanish and have Spanish customs. They know little or nothing about the so-called superheroes.Every toy that was sent to Denver was received with smiles of pleasure and appreciation. The basketballs that were sent were picked the very first, but every toy was appreciated. Those who gave money enabled the leaders to buy for those with special wishes. The wide variety of toys that were donated gave parents many choices for their children. Thank you to the people who delivered the toys to Denver – we could not have done the project without you.Sharon BriggsInner City Toy Project CoordinatorAspen
