I would like to express my sincerest thank you to everyone who donated to the City's toy drive this year. Because of your generosity, we were able to provide gifts for 35 local kids who would potentially go without this holiday season. Each donation was greatly appreciated and made a tremendous difference to the local families who received your gifts. We couldn't have done this without your support. Thank you all once again. Happy Holidays!
