Marion County 'Christmas Toy Shop' Opens Black Friday

Posted: Updated:
FAIRMONT -

The Marion County community comes together every year to make sure every child has a Merry Christmas.

Last year the community raised thousands of dollars for the fourth annual "Christmas Toy Shop."

The County commission has been taking donations in the J. Harper Meredith Building for several weeks.

Commissioners said people begin lining up early on Black Friday but no one will leave empty handed.

"This year we have raised the age. It was infant to 12 and now we are raising it to 14 for boys and girls," said Butch Tennant, Marion County Commissioner. "We figured there was probably children between the ages of 12 and 14 that were probably getting neglected too."

The Christmas Toy Shop will open at 8:00 a.m. Friday morning at the Marion County Election Center.
