Semi of Love
December 4, 2021, 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Make sure Christmas isn't cancelled for area children in need this holiday season by donating to Toys for Tots.
Just swing by the Semi of Love in the Westland Mall parking lot with your new, unwrapped toy and help fill a semi trailer with happiness!
From 4 to 5 PM Friday, the Des Moines County Sherriff's Department will have their canine "Tank" on hand and will do a demonstration; from 5 to 6 PM you can snap pictures with the Grinch; and from 6 to 7 PM you can meet and greet the SCC men's basketball team!
On Saturday, the Grinch will be back for photos with fans from 9 to 10 AM and the Burlington High School Band will perform at 9:30 AM.
More entertainment to be announced soon - tune your radio to 101.7 or 107.3 FM for details.
