The countdown to Christmas is on! Sadly, every year, there are children in the community who haven't really experienced a Merry Christmas.
To that end, employees of the Lima Engine Plant are stepping it up big time by participating in the LEP annual Toys 4 Tots toy drive. Last year, two super duty trucks were used to deliver all the toys and donations to the Allen County Salvation Army.
This year, organizers are hoping to top that by filling three trucks! We need your help to do that! A truck is currently parked by Lock 16 and will remain there through Dec. 14. All toys can be dropped off in the truck before that time. The trucks will then be driven to the Salvation Army, where the non-profit agency will distribute the toys to disadvantaged children in the local community.
Monetary donations are also encouraged and welcomed and no amount is too big or small. Please consider helping if you can by adopting a child off of the Angel Tree located by Lock 16.
