Bulloch Co. authorities team up to raise toys

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - Santa is getting a little help in Bulloch County from sheriff's deputies and police officers. They joined forces Monday morning distributing gifts through their annual Christmas in the Boro project. They teamed with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots and other sponsors to provide gifts to hundreds of needy families. Organizers say this year has been tough.

"The demand has been up this year but donations have been down, that's nationally as well as locally," said Toys for Tots Willie Haynes.

It's not too late to give. You can drop off a toy at the GSU basketball game on Wednesday night at 7 p.m., Big Lots or Walmart in Statesboro.
