JEROME — The Jerome Rotary recently finished its 26th year of doing the “Toys for Tots” drive in Jerome County. Rotarians and community volunteers have been organizing toys, food, and wrapping presents for two weeks at the Jerome County Fairgrounds Messersmith buildings, and on Dec. 21 delivered food and presents to 250 families in the Jerome community.
“Watching this from start to finish for the first time, I’m am amazed at the toys that were donated by the community, how many volunteers it takes to do this drive, and how great our community is to help 250 families have a wonderful Christmas,” said Jerome County Fair manager Jamie Rupert in a news release.
Brian Craig organized the drive and thanked the numerous volunteers who assisted: Rotarians, Jerome County Fair board members, Prescott & Craig employees, Jerome Recreation District employees, North Side Canal Company employees, FFA/4H members and numerous local families.
