41st Annual Toy Run Coming to Independence


The 41st annual Toy Run is taking place in Independence tomorrow.


A.B.A.T.E. District 3 is celebrating the event, which first began in 1981. Independence Chamber of Commerce President Lisa Wilson says that the event begins with a breakfast in the morning.


Following breakfast, there will be a gathering of vehicles to deliver toy donations around town. Wilson says that Santa will lead the group, and people on bikes, trikes, cars, and street legal ATVs will follow.


Additionally, Marine Corps League B Gen. William A. Kurtis is having a toy drive for Christmas. Toy donations will be accepted at Independence VFW, Ace & Gunners Tavern, Community Access Center, Independence Chamber of Commerce, Dollar General, and MPAC Aviation.


Cash donations are also accepted and appreciated. For more information, visit the Independence Chamber of Commerce website or Facebook page.
