The seventh annual North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale Rotary Club Christmas Gift Exchangte toy drive brought gifts to nearly 40 children. 

The toy drive has brought Christmas cheer to hundreds of children in the area through the generous donations of its participants, who gathered for this year’s drive at Keller Golf Course in Maplewood in December. 

Members bring a present for the person whose name they have pulled that is appropriate for their job or business.

Once the gift is opened, the club then votes on the top three most appropriate and the person who gave the gift wins a prize. Then the gifts go to the children.

President Shawn Berry said “It’s so much fun to see who gets what and knowing that we have had a great time and the children get great gifts.”
