As a result, more gifts are available, and more families can be served this year, according to Mike Mapel, a Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy who organized the program three years ago with Angi Knuth, manager of the Boone County Fitness Center.

More than 100 people were served at the first Toys for Tots “shopping days” on Dec. 3 and 4. Another shopping day is planned for Saturday, Dec. 18, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fitness Center.
