Toys for Tots kicks off Christmas campaign

NORWICH – The organizers of the local Toys for Tots campaign hope area residents will add an extra item or two to their holiday shopping list this year to help ensure that all children in Chenango County have presents to open on Christmas morning.



“It’s all about helping out the children, so they can have a Christmas when otherwise they might not,” explained Gail Lawrence, whose employer, The Label Gallery, coordinates the local collection effort.

The local program, which is affiliated with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, strives to provide new, unwrapped toys for needy children throughout Chenango County.

“It’s a joint effort,” said Lawrence, explaining that the Label Gallery works closely with both Roots and Wings and South New Berlin Postmaster Roger Barnhart, a former Marine Reservist, in coordinating the local drive.
