The Wise County Toy Run was formed in 1999 to bring hope and joy to kids and families at Christmas time and throughout the year by doing a parade style motorcycle ride from Decatur to Bridgeport, Texas to gather toys and raise money to give, coats, clothes, and other items to families in need. The first year, the Toy Run was able to provide new mattresses to a local children’s home and provided toys, coats, clothes and other items to Wise County Kids and their families who were in need. Since then our organization has grown tremendously and continues to grow each year and in 2018 Lonestar Charitable Foundation LLC, Non-Profit organization was formed as the parent organization to the Wise County Toy Run. Our Mission is still the same, to make sure that our kids do not go without experiencing the love and joy of Christmas, and by helping kids and families not only at Christmas but throughout the year that are affected by other things such as house fires, loss of homes, family violence, medical situations and other needs. Many of the people of Wise County have known us and see us at Christmas time putting on the Toy Run, but do not realize that we work all year long to help kids and families in need. Throughout the years we have provided scholarships to some of our High School Students, we have provided school supplies, helped families with special needs kids, helped families with children in the hospital, and provided food for families in need. We also partner with others that go into our schools with programs that deal with subjects such as suicide, self harm, cutting, bullying and other things kids are dealing with today.
We have worked hard to make the Wise County Toy Run something our community supports and can be proud of.
