The Toy Program would like to recognize four very special friends that passed away last year. They will always be remembered…

Frank Puccetti, volunteered his off-duty hours; his wife Honey and their beautiful daughters volunteered this year during this difficult time. We hope they found comfort amongst friends.

On behalf of the Toy Program, our prayers and thankfulness for experiencing these wonderful families.
