Today’s the big day for Mac’s Toy Fund

Today is THE day. Mac’s Toy Fund’s 83rd annual distribution party will be this morning at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.

Admission to the event is by invitation only. The Raleigh County office of the Department of Health and Human Services has mailed out more than 4,000 tickets, inviting families to the event.

New and used toys, bikes, handcrafted wooden toys, coats, hats, mittens, fruit and more will be distributed to the children served by the fund.

Although all of the work for Mac’s is done by volunteers, there is still a lot of cost involved in organizing the event. Monetary donations are needed to fund those expenses.
