The Apartment Association of Southeast Texas’ (AASET) Toy Drive for Some Other Place in Beaumont rounded up 150 toys for the local organization that helps meet the needs of the less fortunate members of the community.
The Apartment Association of Southeast Texas 2016 Holiday Toy Drive was a huge success, bringing in more than 150 toy donations to contribute to Some Other Place. Some Other Place in turn distributed those toys to the less fortunate residents of Southeast Texas who could not afford presents for their children during the holidays.
Some Other Place was founded in 1968 by the local religious community to meet the unfulfilled emergency needs of the poor and less fortunate residents of the Beaumont community. When no one could help, they were told they had to go to some other place–thus, the name Some Other Place. Some Other Place allows people to have somewhere to go when all else fails. All services are offered at no charge to the recipient.
AASET member companies, their staff and residents joined to collect donations for the toy drive. AASET has participated in the effort for four years, and looks forward to participating again next year.
