Friday, the Haleyville Rotary Club distributed approximately 500 toys to 180 families in the Haleyville Area. This is the first year the Haleyville Toys for Kids program has been a Rotary Club project. The multi-week project included fundraisers, purchasing the toys and the distribution of the toys.
The Breakfast with Santa held recently is one fundraiser held annually for the project. Rotary Club members have worked many hours on the fundraisers, receiving and cataloging requests, purchasing toys and the actual distribution late Friday.
Many of the toy purchases were made possible with money donated by individuals and local businesses. Rotary Club President Ron Horton thanks everyone who donated their time or money to this worthwhile project, including many non-Rotary members.
