The Polk County Historical Society is partnering with McBrayer's Furniture on their annual TOY DRIVE! How it works: If you're buying toys for your family & friends, you can take advantage of McBrayer's BUY 1 DONATE 1 Melissa & Doug toy sale in their store.

For those not necessarily looking for toys to purchase, but want to donate: At the museum, we have a drop box for any new, unwrapped toy or you can purchase from a selection of Melissa & Doug we have on display. All proceeds and donated toys will go to McBrayer's chosen local charities. We will also have a collection box at the Christmas Brass Concert at the Cedartown Performing Arts Center on December 6th! ...
