For weeks Coloramo Federal Credit union has been collecting toy donations from their customers and employees. Then on Wednesday veterans and members from the charity picked up the donations collected.

In all, over two hundred and fifty toys were collected this year, at Coloramo. It was a good year for the food drive " just yesterday we had a member bring in literally a car load of board games and stuff animals and books so just very generous members that look forward to doing this every year,' says Stephen Harrington, of Coloramo Federal Credit Union.

Coloramo will still serve as a drop off point and even if your toy misses the distribution dead line, it will be saved for next years drive
