There is nothing more rewarding than feeling like you have made a positive difference in someone’s life. It is especially rewarding when that someone is child who may have otherwise had very little or even may have gone without. However, this year, approximately 700 children living in Campbell County did not go without presents under the tree thanks to the Toys for Tots Campaign which is regionally led by the United States Marine Corps Reserve. Because of the generosity and active participation of many concerned citizens, businesses and organizations, Campbell County children were able to experience the magic and excitement of Christmas.
We would like to thank all of those who contributed to the success of this effort. Campbell County Clerk and Master, Campbell County Honor Guard, Campbell County Mayor’s Office, E.E. Hill and Son Insurance Company for the use of the building, Ideal Florist for decorating the building for Christmas, Jellico American Legion Honor Guard, local businesses that donated and collected toys for distribution, Ride Royal Blue/Royal Blue Rangers, Tennessee Smoky Mountain Marine Corps League, Det. 1206 volunteers.
The gift of a smile is priceless. Thank you for bringing that smile to Campbell County children. May God richly bless you in return.
Dan and Rita Herron
