Wyoming, MI (June 28, 2017)—First & Main of Metro Health Village has announced a special Summertime Toy Drive and Car Show.

“Families looking to have fun and spend quality time together will not want to miss this event,” said Bryan Cramer, Executive Director of First & Main of Metro Health Village, “Our goal is to have our community come enjoy a summer day, look at beautiful cars and donate an unwrapped present to our Toy Drive.”

The Show Car registration begins July 15 at 10 a.m. and activities for all ages start at 11 a.m. First & Main of Metro Health Village will be filling their First & Main community bus with presents until 3 p.m. and donating the gifts to the Metro Child Life Program and Helen Devos Children’s Hospital.

“Community efforts like this help Metro Health support children coming to visit family members or coming in for a procedure,” said Michell Rademacher, Community Relations Associate, Metro Health.
