Our Neighbor's Child Delivers Toys

Our Neighbor's Child Delivers Toys

About 400 volunteers lined up last Sunday to get their assignments for delivering toys and clothing to about 545 families in the community — including 1,500 children — for Our Neighbor's Child.

"Without a doubt, it was phenomenal. There are a lot of people with big hearts," said ONC Executive Director Kelly Lavin of the volunteers, many of whom made the delivery process a family affair. "Everyone did a great job. People were happy to be helping the community."

Now in its 13th season, ONC spent about $13,000 on the effort and received $8,000 from the community this year, but Lavin said carryover funds helped make up the difference. However, she added, "We're going to definitely need financial support before next season."
