Last week’s winter storm canceled school, closed roads, and kept many inside.
That meant that donations for the Toys-for-Tots program in Sullivan County are extremely low just weeks before Christmas.
Normally six or more fundraising events would bring in close to $5,000, not the $135 that was raised by the one event that was not affected by the weather.
More fund raising events are planned.
You can help by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy at any drop-off site, like the Dollar General store in Sullivan.
If you would like to donate cash;
Mail monetary donations, to P.O. Box 44, Dugger, IN, 47848;
or you can call (812) 381-1562 and Toys-for-Tots volunteers will gladly pick up either a money donation or a new toy.
