Bullard collecting 'Toys for Tots

Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty offices will once again serve as Metro South collection points for the annual U. S. Marine Corps Reserve "Toys for Tots" campaign.

Jerry Nesbitt, managing broker of the company's Fayette County office, is again the "Toys for Tots" coordinator for the firm. This is the 54th annual "Toys for Tots" drive, and this is the 20th year that Coldwell Banker Bullard has participated in the effort.

Area residents wanting to contribute can drop off a new, unwrapped toy at a Coldwell Banker Bullard office or one of the other collection points, and the Marines will take it from there, distributing the toys to needy children through local charitable organizations.

Nesbitt said this year's collection effort will begin the week of Thanksgiving, and Friday, Dec. 21, is the deadline to bring items to Coldwell Banker Bullard office. For those preferring to contribute money to the campaign, a check made out to "Toys for Tots" will be accepted.

Coldwell Banker Bullard offices are located at 238 Stockbridge Rd., Jonesboro; 103 Jonesboro Rd., McDonough; 658 West Third Street, Jackson; 1968-A Hwy. 54 West, Fayetteville (just outside the eastern city limits of Peachtree City); 7543 Hwy. 85, Riverdale; on Hwy. 34 East, Newnan (just west of the Thomas Crossroads intersection); and at 122-A South 13th St. in Griffin.

The "Toys for Tots" campaign has grown from a small project in the Los Angeles area to nationwide effort. The campaign has the support of a wide array of other organizations, groups, committees, locals businesses, and national corporations.'
