Sixth annual Civil Air Patrol toy drive held in Springfield

Last year's toy drive received over 600 toys

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Ronald McDonald House in Springfield will have toys for children spending the holidays in a hospital bed.

The Westover Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol will provide those toys.

The C.A.P. held its sixth annual toy drive in front of the K-Mart at the Springfield shopping plaza. By all accounts it was highly successful.

Captain Brian Freeman of the Westover Composite Squadron Civil Air Patrol told 22News: “People have been very generous. Last year we made 600 toys, they were all donated. We’re trying to break the record.”

The Ronald McDonald House serves as a home away from home for the families of children being cared for at the Springfield Shriners hospital.
