WORKSHOP DESTROYED: Business Offers Help

A group of metro dental clinics is answering a call for help from a real-life Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

This week, we told you about Vince and Judy Else of Nodaway.

For the last 50 years the couple has collected, cleaned and fixed used toys to give out to needy families.

The couple has hundreds of toys ready to give out this year but Tuesday their workshop full of toys for next year burned to the ground.

The Else’s say they don’t want cash donations, they just need more toys to fix up.

Lifepoint dental wants to help.

It will collect used toys to donate to the Else’s at clinics in Ankeny, West Des Moines and Marshalltown.

The offices are closed over the holidays so they will start accepting donations in January.
