A lot of smiles will be on the faces of children in the Drumheller area this Christmas thanks to a local auto dealer.
The 2nd annual Toys for Tots sees people drop off new, unwrapped presents at Westergard Ford for youngsters who might otherwise have to go without this year.
"We're pretty overwhelmed with the response we're getting from the community (and) the trucks are filling up," reported General Sales Manager Steve O'Dwyer.
It's the 2nd year for the fund raiser, which filled two pickup trucks with new toys last Christmas.
"If we had room for a third (truck) I'd pull it in," O'Dwyer remarked. "The local support is really quite good."
"We've got two more days left, so keep 'em coming."
The event wraps up this Saturday, December 10 with a festive event at Westergard Ford that will include a visit from Santa and other fun things.
99.5 Drum FM will be on location starting at 10:00 a.m.
