Honorary Elf


Toys for Kids of Jefferson County is an all volunteer organization that donates new toys to less fortunate children. It serves around 800 to 1,200 kids each year.

About $20 per child is used for gifts for children aged birth to nine years old; and $25 for those ages 12 to 14, according to Rochelle Bond, the treasurer for the organization.

“We shop all year long to find the best deals,” Bond said.

Preparation for gift donations each year starts the day after the gift give-away, Bond said.

The Toys for Kids of Jefferson County toy gift give away will be held Dec. 7, at the Times Square Mall, from 8 a.m. to noon.
