ROCK SPRINGS — On November 21, the Downtown Broadway Theater hosted a special showing of Toy Story. Sponsored by Vaughn’s Plumbing and Heating, the movie was a fund-drive for the Rock Springs Firefighter’s Toys for Kids program; all revenues were donated to the program.
In addition to the revenue from the ticket sales, Vaughn’s Plumbing and Heating also generously donated an additional $500 to the Toys for Kids program and covered all costs associated with the Toy Story movie. Nearly $800 was contributed to the program as a result of the movie and Vaughn’s generosity.
The management team at Vaughn’s have always made it a priority to give back to the community that has built their success over the past 50+ years.
According to Keaton West with Vaughn’s, “Historically we have diversified our donations to the Tree of Sharing, United Way, Youth Sporting Events, etc. and felt this year we would like to have more involvement in giving back. We felt the toy-for-ticket idea and the Toy Story movie was a great way to become more involved and essentially team up with the community to share the common goal of assisting the Toys for Kids program.”
Our team feels that many kids do not have a choice when it comes to the holiday season, so if we can positively impact their Christmas in return, then that is a win-win reward for both of us!”
