22nd Marion County Toy Run schedule for Saturday afternoon

The 22nd annual Marion County Toy Run is planned for Saturday, Nov. 7. The event has turned into a major benefactor for the underprivileged children of Marion County.

Sponsored by the Sons of American Legion No. 366, ABATE of Kansas Dist. 9 and Route 56 Classic Crui?sers, the event invites participants to donate one new toy as their entry fee.

These toys, as well as donations and money raised at an auction and chili feed after the Toy Run, are donated to community Christmas Trees, area ministerial organizations and Marion County children?s service organizations to provide a better holiday for children.

Over the past 21 years, the event has raised more than $162,000.

This Toy Run will begin at 1 p.m. at SherBowl Lanes, Marion. Toys will be collected for distribution at Hillsboro State Bank, followed by the auction and chili feed at Hillsboro Ameri?can Legion.
