Cousino Restoration along with The Town Center at Levis Commons, in Perrysburg, OH, selected LMHA as the recipient for this year's toy drive. "For the last several years, we have teamed up with host Levis Commons in the annual "Play it Forward" Used Toy Drive where toys are collected beginning the second weekend in January. We bring the toys back to our facility where they are cleaned, sanitized and get new batteries. Every year we pick a different charity to support.", said Shelly Konz of Cousino Restoration.
