Boone County Toy Drive begins 34th campaign

Zionsville — Lebanon and Zionsville officials joined Myrtle Bailey and Marty Downs Monday, Oct. 24, to kick off the 34th annual Boone County Toy Drive.

“I have witnessed countless parents and their children facing heartaches and despair,” said Bailey, who originated the toy drive. “But I have also seen great success as a direct result of the work and devotion of Boone County residents through their love for children.”

Gifts for children up to age 12 are being sought, Bailey said.

n Zionsville Fire Department Station 91, 100 N. Ford Road, Zionsville;
