Nyscopba, Watertown Correctional Facility Make Christmas Brighter for Local Kids

December 20, 2012

State Senator Patty Ritchie recently accepted a generous, $1,000 check for Toys for Tots in Jefferson County from representatives of NYSCOPBA and the Watertown Correctional Facility.

Each year, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys during the holiday season, and distributes them to less fortunate children in the community.
