Ervin has been the owner of Ervin Moulding and Trim Corp. for 26 years. The business deals with the reproduction of older homes and millwork to windows and doors.

There are four people employed at the business.

The &uot;Toys For Tots&uot; headquarters will be really busy in the upcoming weeks. Volunteers with the program will be in their expected places ready to receive toys, and gigantic trucks will be moving them from Nansemond Cold Storage and elsewhere and delivering them to the headquarters on West Washington Street. You would be amazed to see how organized these volunteers are and how much they can get done in one day.

Toys valued over $37,000 have previously been ordered by Bill Ashley, coordinator of the &uot;Toys For Tots&uot; program, and now all that is needed is many dedicated citizens in the area to donate to the Suffolk News-Herald Cheer Fund so that the financial goal of $37,151 for the year 2002 can be reached to provide toys for 1,653 underprivileged children this Christmas.

You as an individual, a business or an organization can have your pictures published with your donation just as Ervin did. Make your tax deductible donation out to the Suffolk Cheer Fund, c/o Suffolk News Herald, 130 S. Saratoga St., Suffolk, Va. 23434 or bring your donation to the office between the hours of 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
