To end the year on a high note, Heritage Woods of DeKalb held a fundraiser for Toys for Tots.

Nothing warms your heart during the holiday season more than children who are less fortunate being able to open presents on Christmas.

During December, Heritage Woods was a drop-off location for new toy donations that were given to area children in need.

The goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

In addition to being a drop-off location, Heritage Woods hosted another fundraising event where people could pay money to throw a pie at our management team. Proceeds from this event went to residents who were then able to purchase additional items for the Toys for Tots drive.

Toys for Tots has been around for more 70 years and has distributed millions of toys to children.

This year, Heritage Woods of DeKalb purchased more than 20 gifts for children and teenagers! One of the many great things about Toys for Tots is that they will give presents to anyone who is still in high school!
