Korben, who not only loves to gather toys for other kids at Christmas time, also loves to roller skate! As most know, Rutherford County is very lucky to have our own Roller Skating Rink and Barbara Shytle, the owner and operator of Skates N Stuff in Forest City, heard about Korbens Toy Drive during the many times Korben has been there to skate. Barbara generously and graciously donated the rink so that Korben could have a second Toy Drive to gather even more toys this year! October 26 is a mandatory teacher workday for Rutherford County Schools so they are hoping lots of kids will bring a new unwrapped toy or a $5 donation and skate from 1 to 5pm! They ask you don't forget to wear a costume if you want as during this event you can expect lots of Door Prizes, Costume Contests for all ages and a chance to buy raffle tickets.
Korben is so grateful for the huge outpouring of local businesses that donated so many prizes. So many they had to group them together and create Mega Prizes! You can find Korbens Story in the about me section of his Facebook page @KorbensToyDrive
