Mercer County spreads cheer with annual holiday toy drive

At the Mercer County Park Commission’s Hunt House are County Executive Brian M. Hughes, Park Commission Deputy Director Joe Pizza, Superintendent of Parks Anthony Cucchi, and representatives of the Park Ranger staff and the U.S. Marine Corps.

Thanks to the generosity of Mercer County residents and Mercer County employees, this year’s season of giving will be brighter for countless area children who will receive some of the hundreds of toys, games and gifts collected through Mercer County’s annual Holiday Toy Drive with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program and the Mercer County Park Commission Rangers.

Toys for children of all ages were collected at various Mercer County offices and facilities, and then gathered for pickup by the Marine Corps, who will present them to children in time for the holidays.

“The holiday season is a time to reflect and be thankful for all that is good in our lives,” said Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes,” and each year the thoughtful people of Mercer County open up their hearts to those less fortunate. To everyone who donated, know that your gift will make a child’s holiday more special, and thank you for taking part in Mercer County’s charitable initiatives.”
