“The Toys for Tots program gives children a day of happiness and joy,” said Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney.  “Many people work very hard on this project to make sure that a child has a package to open and the county is happy to provide these drop-off locations.  I don’t think there is anything that can make one get the holiday spirit more than giving and I am hopeful that the generosity of our community will brighten many children’s holidays this year.”
