WILMINGTON — Since the summer, local food truckers Erin and Kevin Langston have been setting aside proceeds from their WilmyWoodie to donate toys to Good Shepherd. Now, they’re making a final push.

Starting in July, the owners of the WilmyWoodie food truck have set aside 100% of their apparel proceeds to buy toys; so far they’ve put aside $1,500. The Langstons goal is to stuff their sizeable food truck with gifts for kids in need, and to complete that task they’re having a year-end finale.

At the finale, to be held at Mad Mole, they’ll be accepting donations of new, unwrapped gifts. As an enticement to donate, the Langstons are putting together “an awesome swag bag with items from many of the breweries and businesses we partner with.” To be eligible to win, people must donate a toy or purchase a WilmyWoodie hat or t-shirt during the finale.

The event is set for 5 p.m. Saturday, December 14 at Mad Mole Brewing (6309 Boathouse Road, Unit C, just off of Oleander Drive).

And be on the look-out: Santa might just make an appearance from 5 to 7 p.m.
