Kentucky State Police and Mr. Gatti's Distribute Toys

Date of News Release: 12/23/2008

(Frankfort, KY) - Mr. Gatti's working with the Frankfort Post of the Kentucky State Police to distribute toys. Two Mr. Gatti's Family Fun Centers in Louisville accepted donations of new, unwrapped toys in original packaging as part of their Kids-4-Kids Toy Drive that ended Dec. 18. In return for the gifts, Gattiland rewarded the kids that donated toys with a free kids buffet.

The participating Mr. Gatti's are located at 1108 Lyndon Lane and 4200 Outer Loop. Mike Daleo, Mr. Gatti's district manager, said the toy drive is all about "kids helping kids."

"We are promoting the holiday spirit by asking our young customers to think about those less fortunate during the holidays," said Daleo. "We suggest that parents and mentors of area kids encourage the kids themselves to select a toy and purchase it to give to a needy child to help them experience the joy of giving."

The two Mr. Gatti's restaurants turned several bags of toys over to TFC. Ronald Turley at Post 12 Frankfort on Dec. 23. The toys will be distributed to local children in need by Troopers of the Frankfort Post.

"I'm glad to report that 20 kids from 14 families within the Post 12 area received the donated toys," said TFC. Ronald Turley. "This is the third year for this partnership. It's all about helping kids."
