This year for the first time in Nolan County, the roar of motorcycles signaled the start of the Goodfellows Motorcycle Toy/Canned Good Run.
Each rider and passenger brought a new toy and a canned good to the Toy Run and was donated to the Sweetwater Goodfellows at the annual Goodfellows toy drive on Saturday, Dec. 1, at Wal-Mart. Many others also donated food, toys and money at the annual toy drive.
A total of 315 toys were collected, which is up from last year’s total of 282 toys collected. Also a total of $457 was collected at the drive.
The Sweetwater Goodfellows distribution will be from 9-11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 7, at the Lamar Street Baptist Church recreation building. A Christmas party with Santa will follow distribution for the children from 3:45-4:45 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7, at Lamar Street Baptist Church (only for families with children).
Set-up for the distribution will take place at 5 p.m. each day on Tuesday, Dec. 4, through Thursday, Dec. 6, at Lamar Street Baptist Church, located at 513 Lamar Street.
