Ordered toys unloaded

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, December 4, 2002

Members of the Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Association of Insurance Financial Advisors were quite busy yesterday. They unloaded toys that were ordered earlier this year from Mercy USA from Lexington, N.C., Namco from Manchester, Conn., and Oscars from Chicago, Ill. Those taking part in the unloading were Jackie Taylor, Bill Ashley (Toys for Tots coordinator), Jim Chelew, and Bob Mitchell. These toys will be paid for by donations to the Suffolk Cheer Fund sponsored by the Suffolk News-Herald.

The distribution begins Thursday, Dec. 12 from the building donated by Bill Chorey at 800 W. Washington St.

The goal for this year is $37,500. Today the fund took in $1,235, which is a large step toward its goal.
