PSC Holiday Festival raises money for 'Toys for Joy'

Toys for Joy

The 16th Annual Holiday Festival at Potomac State College of West Virginia University recently raised $1,496 for ‘Toys for Joy’ and received enough toys to nearly fill the back of a truck.

Pictured from left are: Kay Shumaker; Jim Shumaker, a realtor with Coldwell Banker who also serves as local coordinator of the ‘Toys for Joy’ program; Fred Downey, assistant director of public safety and training at the College; Dawn Downey, library technical assistant at the College and their daughter, Delany. The Downey's serve as coordinators of the Holiday Festival at Potomac State which donates the use of the facility as well as maintenance support.

All money raised and all toys collected are distributed to local children. Coldwell Banker Home Town Realty initiated the annual collection of toys in the region for ‘Toys for Tots’ 17 years ago.
