HAGERSTOWN - Local veterans came together to kick off Washington County's Toys for Tots campaign Sunday.
Spearheaded by Hagerstown's Bulldog Detachment of the Marine Corps League, the local U.S. Military Veterans Motorcycle Club sponsored a toy run and rally at Washington County's AMVETS Post 10 on Frederick Street in Hagerstown.
"Every kid should have a good Christmas. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, black or white, it doesn't matter," said Gary Lloyd, motorcycle club president.
By 3 p.m., veterans had filled two collection boxes with toys at the rally, held from 1 to 6 p.m. Last year's Toys for Tots campaign collected toys for about 1,700 kids, said detachment member and Toys for Tots Chairman Philip Stotelmyer.
