Register O’Donnell Promotes Annual Toys for Tots Drive

The great American Charlie Brown cartoonist Charles Schulz once said, "Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone." With that in mind, Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell today announced that the Registry will once again be sponsoring its annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots drive.

"The Registry of Deeds is again delighted to partner with a charity like the Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots program," said O'Donnell. The Register added, "Since 1947, when the program was established, because a wife of a Marine officer couldn't find an organization to take a Raggedy Ann doll, approximately a half billion gifts have been donated."

Donations of new and unwrapped games and toys can be bought to the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds, 649 High Street, Dedham starting Monday, November 23rd through noon Wednesday, December 16th. A marked donation bin will be set up in the Registry lobby Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 4:30PM for donations.

Register O'Donnell concluded, "The success of the drive is the direct result of the Yuletide efforts of charitable citizens in Norfolk County and across America who take a moment of their time to remember those less fortunate. By dropping off gifts at the Toys for Tots sites, the joys of the holiday season can be created for so many."
