Stocking the Toy Chest

A toy drive will be held tomorrow at the Giant in Harrison Crossing in Spotsylvania. Toys will go to the Orange County Toy Box, a collection which helps children through the county’s department of social services. The toy drive will be tomorrow (Dec. 11), 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.  To participate, bring a new, unwrapped toy or game.

And a reminder, that Salvation Army still has hundreds of angels that haven’t been picked from area Angel Trees. These paper angel tags include the wishes of an area child in need. Wishes range from winter coats to bicycles to games. The tags and gifts are due back Monday, so time is running out.
