Legion post, crime watch group organizing toy drive

American Legion Post 24 in Columbus and the Taylorsville crime watch group helped donate toys to the Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund by working with the Dollar General stores in Taylorsville and Edinburgh.

Donors either bought toys at the stores or brought in donations. The toys were delivered to the United Way of Bartholomew County for distribution.

The toy drive will continue through late December, with additional donations going toward next year’s distribution, said William Tapscott, of the Taylorsville crime watch group.
