Toys for Local Tots Committee gives thanks

Editor:

The Toys for Local Tots Committee would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped make this inaugural year -- under the leadership of the Newcomerstown Chamber of Commerce -- a big success.

First of all, we would like to thank the Newcomerstown Public Library for use of the Library Annex for registration, as well as thanks to Greg Bowman of Bowman's Sportswear for use of the vacant building beside his business.

The committee would also like to thank the anonymous person who won the toy raffle at Baker's IGA and donated all of the toys to the cause.

We would also like to thank the area churches, banks, businesses and everyone who assisted Toys for Local Tots in any way, especially the community who responded to the call and the need for monetary donations.

In all, we helped 88 children have a brighter Christmas. With the communities' generous donations, we even have some money left to start our 2010 Toys for Local Tots campaign.
