When Member Service Support read of a Christmas toy shortage in the Herald Times, they rallied to collect last minute donations for Toys for Tots of Monroe County. The agency had 1,200 children on their recipient list and wanted to collect enough toys to give each child at least two presents. More than 400 families signed up to receive assistance, and only those who did not receive help from other agencies were eligible. For most, the gifts from Toys for Tots were the only ones they received for Christmas. Because of last minute donations like the one from MSS, the charity exceeded their goal, with most children receiving three presents for Christmas. The kids thank you, Member Service Support, and all of the others that graciously donated!
