Over $8,000 in cash, checks & toy donations came in during this week’s local fundraising efforts for Toys For Tots, following last Friday’s storage unit fire in Norwich that destroyed about $8,000 of toys that were to be distributed for this Christmas. Tioga Downs kicked in $3000 in matching funds yesterday, and the toys were brought from the WCDO Studios to Bainbridge yesterday for distribution, Toys for Tots Coordinator Roger Barnhart stopped by Snips & Snails & commented about the local efforts:
