WELCH– A local detachment of the state police has been collecting toys for needy children in the area.
For more than 20 years, the Welch detachment of the State Police has held a toy drive for the children of McDowell County. They say multiple contributions have been received from within and outside the county, as well as from out of state. Several contributions came from people who once resided in the county and still have a soft spot in their hearts for its children. They want to say thank you to everyone in the community who helped make this event possible once again.
