Toy Drives

 What a nice weekend at the beach! The New Smyrna Christmas Parade was great fun and the Boat Parade was beautiful! If you are looking to share your Christmas with local children here are two ways to make that happen.
McKenna's is hosting a Toy Drive on December 13th and December 20th. Stop by with a unwrapped gift and receive a complimentary appetizer card valued at $5.95. All gifts will be given to the Fireman's Association of Edgewater and will be distributed to local children. 
New Smyrna Beach Police Department is conducting their 21st Annual "Operation Christmas Cheer" campaign. They are accepting new toys, clothes, non-perishable food items, and grocery store gift cards to be distributed to local families in need. Last year 125 local families were assisted by this local drive. 
Items should be dropped off prior to December 20th at City Hall, 210 Sams Avenue, The Fire Department on Faulkner Street and at the Police Department on Industrial Park Dr. If you need more information contact Sgt. Donna LaVallee at (386) 424-2243.
