Event supports Christmas giving

WARREN,Ohio (WKBN) – It’s never too early to plan for Christmas. Just ask members of the VFW 1090 Post in Warren.

The group was holding a 97-mile motorcycle run to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots holiday gift program.

The entry fee was either a wrapped present or cash. Post member Richard Phillips said every little bit helps.

“For the children of the area, things like this are very important,” said Phillips. “What happens is a lot of kids don’t have anything at Christmas and this really helps out.”

Phillips said all of the money and gifts will be collected by the Marines to distribute at Christmas.
