Passing of Iris Davis-Grant (Toys for Tots Coordinator)
Published: 23 May 2016 ::: Last Updated: 23 May 2016 ::: Views: 351 ::: Category: Detachment News Taps
It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of my dear friend and colleague, Iris Davis-Grant. Iris dedicated the last several years to many causes and was the coordinator for the Toys for Tots - Westchester Warehouse for many years. Last year she took up the challenge to become the campaign coordinator, even knowing she would only do it for one year. Iris spent her life dedicated to helping children even after she retired from Social Services she continued to spend her time working with Young Marines of Westchester and of course Toys for Tots.
The Toys for Tots family will miss her enthusiasm and never ending energy. Please extend your prayers to her family, especially her daughter Kira Freeman. She will be missed.
Kelly and I will especially miss her guidance as we continue to carry the baton with Toys for Tots. I will continue on as the Toys for Tots Coordinator and hope that each of you will continue to support the program and the kids.
Please stop and take a moment to remember Iris. Her laughter, her joy, and her boundless energy. Raise a glass of wine and offer a prayer and a heartfelt toast in remembrance
