Despite changes in format forced by the Covid-19 virus, supporters continue to come through for Mac’s Toy Fund. Monetary donations are rolling in from all around southern West Virginia, as well as other areas of the United States.

Barred by the pandemic from holding its 90th annual toy distribution to Raleigh County children, Mac’s opted to award grants to a number of area nonprofit organizations that share its mission in aiding children.

Among the grantees was Mountainheart Community Services, which last week distributed 150 bags of toys, socks and shoes to children below poverty guidelines.
