To the Editor:

We would like to thank participants who gave their time and money donating to the bike and toy drive.

To the businesses that were so kind as to be drop-off points for merchandise, we thank you for such a great success. They include BB&T in Newsoms, BSV in Boykins, Meherrin Elementary, Riverdale Elementary, Southampton High, Curves, and Food Lions in Courtland and Franklin.

I would also like to give a big thank-you to Gwen Albers, of The Tidewater News for covering all our stories.

We look forward to another great year of giving.

Again, thanks to all who donated and volunteered your time for a worthy cause.
