KOAM ToyBox helps struggling Allen County family
IOLA, Kan. – Shannon Poore’s history with the KOAM ToyBox goes way back.
Shannon has three kids, two little boys ages 6 and 10, and a little girl who will turn five in April. She admits Christmas can be a challenge.
That’s where the KOAM ToyBox comes into play, partnering with distributors like the Iola First Baptist Church and police department. Shannon says the outpouring of love and support from the community is heartwarming.
“When I got the call that they adopted my kids, I was excited that our local police department done it, but it also brought tears to my eyes knowing that someone that we knew, and the people that help us, adopted my kids,” said Poore.
Shannon says she’s grateful for the help she gets putting presents under the tree for her three little ones. So many families depend on your donations.
“If it wasn’t for them, then a lot of us wouldn’t even have a Christmas for our kids,” admitted Poore.
