What Is Play It Forward?
Play It Forward is a used toy drive where gently used toys are collected, cleaned, and local charities in Toledo and surrounding areas come and pick out toys needed for their families and facilities. Broken toys are recycled by City Of Perrysburg pilot program for Hasbro and will be there the day of collection, collecting broken toys and toys with pieces missing to get properly recycled.
UpLyft Toledo will also be present to collect new or used sports equipment to give to children that would not be able to participate otherwise.

Cousino Restoration in Perrysburg has been dealing with emergency damage situations for decades. Co-owner Michael Cousino said water damage is a problem many homeowners face every year.
“Every 100 homes, there’s going to be about two of them homes per 100 that are going to flood a year,” he said.
Cousino said the two main problems people face is a failing sump pump or a clogged drain.
A sump pump is a common way to remove water from your home and Cousino said investing in a good one is some of the best insurance you can have in addition to home owners insurance coverage. He said people should check on them ahead of heavy rain events.
Test Fire Protection Equipment
It's important for your team to do what they can to prevent building fires, but don't forget about your responsibilities too. One of the most important precautions for property and facility managers and owners is testing the fire protection equipment. You might have the proper fire sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers, smoke, and carbon monoxide detectors installed, but that doesn't mean they will work in the event of an emergency. These fire systems must be regularly tested and inspected.
Fire Sprinkler Systems
In the winter, it's especially important to check in on the fire sprinkler system because the pipes are at risk of freezing. This could cost you thousands in damage, and even worse, your system might not work if there is a fire.
Make sure you're checking fire extinguishers every 30 days to ensure that the gauge is pointing to the green area.
In a fire, every second counts. Smoke alarms should be installed in every room, hallway, and on every level of the building. Proper testing of fire alarm systems can save dollars and lives.
These simple tips can help keep your buildings and properties safe. But disasters will happen, so be prepared and call Cousino Medical Services!
