Alexander Youth Network Toy Drive

Men of Area 51,

As many of you know, F3 has a longstanding relationship with Alexander Youth Network [AYN].  AYN is a non-profit organization that provides professional treatment to children with serious emotional and behavioral problems.  There are up to 36 kids [boys and girls, ranging from 8-14 years old] that live at AYN, receiving daily treatment over a number of months.  Many of these kids have come from rough circumstances, including physical and emotional violence.  F3 has had a partnership with AYN for over a year.  We’ve done about 15 workouts with the kids; we hosted a cookout for the kids, and the F3 Foundation has purchased outdoor sporting equipment for AYN.

With Christmas right around the corner, we’ve decided to embark on a “Christmas toy drive” to buy NEW toys for the boys and girls at AYN.  We have assembled a group of Toy Qs that will get the word out and coordinate the toy collection efforts across Area 51 during the next few weeks.  The Toy Drive will end on the morning of December 19th.  See below for a list of the Toy Qs, and also for the wish list items that have been provided by kids at AYN.

Incredible cause for an incredible organization. If you haven’t spent an afternoon at AYN, you’re missing out. A humbling and truly meaningful experience. Step up, men.

Joker,

Per our conversation this morning at DV, hit me up with your personal email and I will get in touch with you and find a time to drop a toy at your house later this week or on Saturday.
