Saturday, Community Action, Inc., held a kickoff event for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign at Femco Machine, the location of the gingerbread house.
As the official drop-off site, the gingerbread house was visited by Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, who gave treats to visiting children.
Hot dogs, cookies, cocoa and coffee was available to those who stopped by.
Pictured at the event are (front, from left) Lincoln Skarbek, Clair Skarbek, Dartanyan Pifer, (back) Scott Walker of Femco, Brady Snyder, Mason Snyder, Melva McGranor of the Community Action Board of Directors and Joe Ingros of Femco.
The last day to donate new, unwrapped toys is Monday, Dec. 11.
