Toys for Tots brought joy to hundreds of kids in the Page area as volunteers handed out 1,452 toys at First Baptist Church of Page last week. 

Debbie Winlock, who has served as the Toys for Tots Page coordinator for 12 years, said that hundreds more toys were donated this year than previous years, thanks to an increase in community involvement. 

“Last year was the first year with toy drop-offs at the Page Lake Powell Chamber, Lake Powell Furniture and Page Police Department, and this year contributions to those places doubled,” she said, adding that although the official deadline was Dec. 20, they kept taking names and contributions right up to Christmas Day.
