Marshall Young Insurance Toy Drive to benefit Operation Blessing
Marshall Young Insurance is proud to announce the kickoff of the annual Toys for Tots toy drive benefiting Operation Blessing. Operation Blessing accepts new unwrapped toys and distributes them to families throughout Johnson County. Toys can be left at the Marshall Young Insurance office at 401 N. Ridgeway Drive between now and December 19th. From 6:00 AM until 11:00 AM on Friday, December 19, KCLE will broadcast the morning show live from the Marshall Young Insurance building. Listeners are encouraged to drop toys off and have some coffee and donuts. Operation Blessing was started in 1980 after realizing the overwhelming need of a place to supply food, clothing and household items to those in emergency or stressful situations. Its mission began with only two large black garbage bags of clothing and some canned food, located in a storage room in the back of a Christian bookstore on South Main. As the ministry grew it moved to several other locations before Eastern Heights Church donated their building at 105 George Street and phone number of 817-645-8511. Operation Blessing has served thousands of Johnson County Residents in need and continues to bless many of our community. Marshall Young Insurance, founded in 1965, is an independent insurance agency serving North Texas with competitive auto, home, life, health, Worker’s Compensation, key man, disability, long-term care and farm & ranch insurance products.

Little did I know the plans he had for the building and the transformation that would take place before it was finished.” Jonathan said, “I want to thank Mark Sims of Mark Sims Construction for the great job they did remodeling the building. It was a great experience and I have already told Mark I need to find another building to remodel.
