Each year Valley Bowling Lanes in Childs hosts a fundraiser to help children in the area who are in need for Christmas. Valley Bowling Lanes has been holding toy drives for the past nine Christmases. Cindy Dragwa, manager of Valley Bowling Lanes and Champions Lounge, started with only four children and has grown this fundraiser to help 18 children in the Jermyn and Mayfield area. Every year she plans on helping more; their goal for next Christmas season is 20 children. Gifts generated through this fundraiser provide the recipients with winter coats, hats, gloves, full stockings, pajamas, outfits and toys that match the childrens’ Christmas wishes. Officials say a toy drive of this magnitude would not be possible without the outpouring of support the group receives from participating bowlers in all leagues at Valley Lanes, as well as patrons of Champions Lounge.
