    Just got this from Bill Cable, President of the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society.

    The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society, in association with Toy Heaven, is holding a Star Wars toy drive to benefit Garrison Carida of the 501st Legion. Garrison Carida encompasses much of the mid-Atlantic region, including
    Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia. They are a truly
    service-oriented chapter of the 501st, dedicating the majority of their efforts to helping children. They visit children's hospitals 6 or 7 times a year where they pose for photos with the patients and hand out Star Wars toys. The toys collected through this drive will be given to the children during these visits.

    The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (http://www.PSWCS.com), in
    association with Toy Heaven (http://www.thetoyheaven.com), is holding a
    Star Wars toy drive to benefit Garrison Carida
    (http://www.garrisoncarida.com) of the 501st Legion (http://www.501st.com).
    Garrison Carida encompasses much of the mid-Atlantic region, including
    Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia. They are a truly
    service-oriented chapter of the 501st, dedicating the majority of their
    efforts to helping children. They visit children's hospitals 6 or 7 times a
    year where they pose for photos with the patients and hand out Star Wars
    toys. The toys collected through this drive will be given to the children
    during these visits.

    PSWCS will accept donations from November 1st through December 6th. The
    donations will be collected and stored at Toy Heaven, a Philadelphia-area
    toy shop that specializes in action figures and collectibles from the 1970s
    to present, including vintage and modern Star Wars toys. On December 6th
    PSWCS will hand the toys over to representatives of Garrison Carida at a
    special celebration that will be held at Toy Heaven. We're expecting 20
    fully-armored members of Garrison Carida to be on-hand for the event.

    If you would like to contribute to this toy drive, you can mail your
    donations to the address below. We can accept Star Wars action figures,
    vehicles, and games. However, Garrison Carida does not hand out
    role-playing toys or weapons. In addition to toys, Garrison Carida needs
    the camera film that is used to take their pictures. They use Polaroid
    Spectra instant film. Additional information can be found at
    http://www.pswcs.com/toydrive/.

    PSWCS has set a personal goal of donating 170 toys from club members - one
    toy for each member. We hope you will join us in supporting this fine
    organization and their efforts to brighten the days of children who need it
    most. Thank you!

    Please mail your donations to:

    Garrison Carida Toy Drive
    c/o James Gallo/Toy Heaven
    28 West Lancaster Ave.
