(AREA) -- The annual "New To You Toy Event" hosted by the Great Start Collaborative Parent Group is happening today at the Lexington United Methodist Church from 4-7 p.m. Volunteers have been gathering new and gently used toys from all over Sanilac County to stock the shelves of a magical store that provides free toys to any parent, grandparent, or guardian in need of help putting gifts under their Christmas tree this year. Sandusky High School Student Council students did their part and braved the cold to collect cash donations at the main corner in Sandusky, raising over $1,500 for the purchase of new toys. The Croswell-Lexington National Honor Society donated $100 towards the event and the Lexington United Methodist Church provides space for the event. A special thanks goes out to Great Start Parent Liaison Nina Barnett, who orchestrates the event with her parent members.
