Friends, we are still moving forward with our event, but want to let everyone know about the precautions being taken to keep everyone safe.
1. In accordance with the Governor’s mandate, we recommend that you wear a mask when inside the building. (State Recognized Exemptions Apply)
2. We are renting a tent for social distancing that will allow extra seating areas.
3. The indoor restrooms will be closed, however, there will be additional port-a-potties available. We are closing the restrooms due to factors that have made it impossible to comply with State guidelines. The use of the port-a-potties will allow us to be able to sanitize them more efficiently. We will also have hand sanitizer available. The food line creates a large crowd of people in an extremely confined space.
4. All food servers will be wearing masks and gloves.
We all have our own opinions on how the world is handling the “Covid Crisis” and we know some of these precautions may be inconvenient, but we do ask for your patience and understanding. Our primary focus and concern is raising the funds needed to sustain the Home and take care of these children.
We are just so thankful to have the opportunity to go through with having the event during such a chaotic time. Again, please understand, our primary concern is your safety, as well as the safety of the children and staff of the Home. We can’t wait to see you there!
Take a look at last year’s Toy Run 2019!
Since 2002, The Eldridge Toy Run has had the greatest opportunity to be a blessing to the Alabama Free Will Baptist Children’s Home, located in the small town of Eldridge, Alabama, roughly 60 miles Northwest of Birmingham, Alabama.
Since 1948, this home has opened their doors and given a home to children of all age groups from across the country without support from state or federal monies. The bulk of support for the home comes from their home-based denominational organization along with many other churches, civil groups and volunteers lending a hand, both, in services and financial support.
The Eldridge Benefit Team consists of motorcycle and antique car enthusiasts from Northeast Mississippi and Northwest Alabama joining hands with the community to lend support in financial aid and awareness of the Alabama Free Will Baptist Children’s Home in Eldridge, Alabama.
This is not your ordinary Toy Run. Riders from the entire Southeast and across the Nation arrive from all directions on the first Saturday in December, hence…
“The First Saturday in December – All Roads Lead to Eldridge”
Rain or shine, hot or cold, this event WILL happen, so prepare to join us for a fantastic day for the kids.
This benefit, on site, enables you to see where and how your donations are used. We suggest donations of cash or checks be made payable to “Alabama Free Will Baptist Children’s Home” with “Eldridge Toy Run” noted in the memo portion of your check. These funds are used to sustain the home the entire year. We also present Christmas gifts to all the children from their very own Christmas “wish list” ensuring that these wonderful children experience a Christmas to remember and for many, one they’ve never had to opportunity to experience before.
Please join us. Bring your riding group. We guarantee you will leave with a warm heart for your ride home.
