Chautauqua Area Scholarship Program Supports Toys for Tots

Contestants in the 2018-19 Chautauqua Area Scholarship Program pose with Patrick Smeraldo of Chautauqua Connections, Inc., one of the coordinators of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots drive in Chautauqua County.  The scholarship program will take place Saturday, November 17, in the Southwestern Central School Auditorium, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Everyone planning to attend is encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to be donated to Toys for Tots.  The local toy drive is coordinated by The Resource Center, Chautauqua Connections and the Chautauqua Connections Children’s Coalition.  Each year, the toy drive makes the holidays merrier for about 2,400 children.
