Annual toy drive benefits Stateline area families


For the 16th year in a row, Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall hosted a day-long toy drive benefiting the Salvation Army.

Friday's 12-hour event was kicked off this year with almost $10,000 worth of toys donated by employees from Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall and Lou Bachrodt Buick GMC.

Local choral groups singing Christmas carols were also on hand and Santa Claus was giving out candy canes.  The drive has a long history of success with over 90 percent of all the toys collected for the Salvation Army in the Stateline area coming from this one-day drive.

Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall, First Northern Credit Union, and the Salvation Army all partnered for this toy drive event.
