The HMS Implacable, the Santa Fe/Los Alamos Chapter of the Honor Harrington Fan Association, is pleased to announce its Toys for Tots Drive, to take place 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at Metzger’s Do It Best Hardware at 1607 Central Ave., in Los Alamos.
Toys For Tots is a national charity organized by the United States Marines Corps Reserve. Its goal is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
“We are asking for donations of new, unwrapped toys and art supplies,” said Daniel Brandow, organizer of the Los Alamos charity drive. “Christmas is a time of year we all remember. And the US Marines want to make that memory a bit brighter for those in need.”
