It's toy drive time! When we ask you to donate a new unwrapped toy for the NewsChannel 8 Great Toy Drive. For those of you wondering how it all works here's the basics. With your help we collect the toys, then a number of agencies that work with families and children in need distribute them in time for Christmas.

For a number of years I had the great joy of delivering a stack of them to a local classroom of little ones in the Head Start program.It always made me cry (happy tears...I'm an equal opportunity crier ) and give a little more. It shouldn't be the children who suffer.

We'll be at the new Bridgeport Village this Saturday(the 26th) right off the Lake Oswego-Durham exit.My shift is from 9am to 11am. I'll bring the kids if they feel better. You parents out there know how it goes...what's a holiday without a sick child ? Anyway, remember us if you are out and about. It's a great way to start the holidays !
