Minden Christmas Toy Drive a success

Going back to the 1970’s, Minden Civitans, Young Women’s Service Club and Minden Police have collected and distributed Christmas toys for children in the Minden area. This year was no different.

Toys were dropped off at several area locations. Also, funds were raised during the year from individuals, Minden Fair Pageant, a gun raffle and other fund raising events. Because of the generous citizens of Minden and the dedication of several volunteers, 273 area children will be receiving Christmas presents this year.

 Volunteers collected and bought toys then spent several nights packaging them up according to gender and age at the Minden Police Department. Officers then delivered the toys to local families.

Thank you to Minden Civitans, Young Women’s Service Club and the Minden Police Department. Your unwavering dedication to the citizens of Minden is greatly appreciated.
