Thiel College, the Mercer County Family Center and the U.S. Marine Corps extend a grateful thank you to all those who generously donated to the 2008 U.S. Marines Corps Toys for Tots campaign. The sixth annual drive was once again coordinated by the Thiel Campus Police, Greenville-West Salem Township Police and members of Thiel’s sororities and fraternities. Thiel College collected $2,380 for the campaign, much of it by Chief Don Aubrecht during lunchtime at area businesses, along with many toys and gifts. More than 600 children in Mercer County will have a very Merry Christmas thanks to your generosity!
