The 3rd Annual Delaware KIDS Fund Holiday Toy Drive was held on Wednesday December 15th at James Street Tavern in Newport. All toys collected were donated directly to the Hill Top Lutheran Community Center in Wilmington. The toy drive also helped raise an additional $1,400 in donations during the event. Guests were encouraged to bring a toy or a $5 donation which was good for one complimentary drink and great tasting appetizers throughout the event.
