LEE -- The 54th annual Laliberte Toy Fund Drive is nearing the halfway mark thanks to the holiday charity recently receiving more than $1,000 in donations.
A pair of $200 contributions helped pushed the fund toward this year's goal of $5,000.
The fund is open to children in Lee, Lenox Dale and Tyringham.
Donations may be given in two categories, "In lieu of cards" or "In memory of loved ones," and mailed to the Laliberte Toy Fund, P.O. Box 559, Lee, MA 01238, or dropped off at any Lee Bank location.
