The 17th annual Marion County Toy Run will be Nov. 6.
Participants will meet at 1 p.m. at SherBowl Lanes, 131 S. Thorp St., Marion, and ride to Hillsboro State Bank, where some toys will be distributed. An auction and chili feed will follow at Hillsboro American Legion Post 366.
Sponsored by the Sons of American Legion No. 366, ABATE of Kansas District 9, and Route 56 Classic Cruisers, participants are asked to donate a new toy as an entry fee. These toys, as well as other donations and money raised at an auction and chili feed after the toy run, are donated to community Christmas programs and ministerial organizations throughout the county.
In the past 16 years, more than $100,000 has been raised.
Donations may be sent to Marion County Toy Run c/o Hillsboro SAL 366, 406 S Floral Dr, Hillsboro KS 67063 or contact representatives from a sponsoring organization.
