 FLORIDA MARLINS Toys for Tots and Teens

At this year’s BSO “Toys for Tots and Teens” toy drive, Santa may have worn his big red suit, but Santa’s helpers came dressed in blue pin stripes!

Over a dozen volunteers from the Florida Marlins Community Foundation helped to make this year’s toy drive a huge success. Over 3,000 children received toys this past Saturday as the Broward Sheriff’s Office held its 15th annual “Toys for Tots and Teens” toy drive. Families began arriving outside the BSO headquarters building at 2:00am Saturday to be among the first in line.

Billy the Marlin was also on hand to greet the children as they entered BSO’s “Toy Land!”

In addition to donating their time, the Florida Marlins also donated $7,500 towards the toy drive.
