Campaign collects toys for area youth


The local Toys for Tots campaign collected more than 1,500 toys and stocking stuffers, making the holiday a little brighter for area children.

The management and employees at S&W Supply and its parent company, Warehouse Corp., spearheaded the effort coordinated by Ryan Bickle, vice president of sales.

Participants included students at Thomas More Prep-Marian High School, who took on the project as a class challenge and collected hundreds of toys for the fundraiser.

Collection boxes were located at the eight S&W Supply stores and 55 other locations in Kansas, including five in Hays.
