This year's Operation Christmas Tree was a success, say organizers.
The Dec. 11 event was the sixth in which the Lambton OPP have run the drive-through food collection event out of the St. Clair Township office.
With a steady increase in contributions continuing this year, the event raised $1,025, plus 1,014 food items and more than 200 toys (up from $506, 682 food items and 168 toys last year).
Volunteers from the Corunna Community Policing Committee, Lambton OPP, and Lambton College were on hand to accept the items and to hand out candy to the kids. All of the donated items and money will be used to assist needy families in St. Clair Township.
