We should all be proud of their efforts. They collected thousands of dollars, thousands of toys and helped hundreds of families have a wonderful Christmas. In particular, Peggy Bryan, Linda Mixon, Dennis Coleman and Tiffany O’Connell organized toy drives, but they had many, many helpers and thanks go out to anyone and every- one who contributed time, money or toys.
