Toys For Tots Ready for the Holiday Season
Volunteers with the Toys for Tots Campaign in Pine County came together on Friday to discuss ideas and the direction of this years program. This is the third year for the Pine County Toys for Tots. Vicki VanderVegt is in her first year heading the program. She says Toys for Tots is important, because every child deserve to have something special for the holidays.
Last year the County served 345 families and distributed toys to nearly 800 children. VandgerVegt does say that the state of the economy will likely play a factor in the amount of donations this year, but encourages everyone to give what they can.
Distribution day is scheduled for Friday, December 19th and applications must be submitted by Monday, December 15th.
