TOLEDO (WTOL) - It started out as a weed, now it’s a destination!
Several groups have stepped up to organize several events this weekend to support local non-profits.
On Friday, sing an ode to the Toledo Christmas Weed! Caroling is planned from 5-6 p.m. Santa will be there leading the songs. You’ll also see a special performance by fire-breathing glassblower KC Saint John. You can find more details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/205692193693001/
Saturday from 12-2 p.m., donate a non-perishable food item and get a free 4x6 photo with the Toledo Christmas Weed.
Also, the Lucas County Pit Crew and Planned Pethood will be collecting donations for dogs and cats on Saturday. Click for more details: https://bit.ly/2EEJq4W.
