L-R) Mary Beth Meyers and Julie Bentley and (not pictured) Kathy Parsells were on hand Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Idaho County Veterans Community Outreach Center in Grangeville to deliver the annual Marine Reserve Toys for Tots. This year, 58 local families with 146 children were served through this program. Organizer Bentley thanked Parsells and Meyers for their assistance, Jay and Dianne Balch for the use of their trailer to transport items from Lewiston, Bob and Betty Beckman for continuous donations and Ginny Cash and the veterans center for opening their doors for distribution day. Eagles Aerie 539 assisted in purchasing presents for children 16 to 18, and Holcomb Construction donated funds to purchase coats for older kids as well. “Of course, we could not do this without the generosity and donations from our wonderful community,” Bentley added.
