Christmas in August?? “You bet,” say Toys for Tots volunteers, who have already started meeting weekly at the Key West Police Department during lunch hour to plan their annual Christmas holiday children’s gift campaign.
Letters have already gone out to last year’s sponsors and some fund-raising projects are in the works. Last year the Key West Police Department and Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program gave Santa Claus Christmas gifts to deliver to over 200 needy Key West kids from more that 100 families.
Anyone who is interested in volunteering to work on Toys for Tots, or wishes to donate toys or money, is asked to call Ellie Barker at 809-1015.
