Faletti’s 5th annual Toy Run raises $15K for local charities

Fundraiser supports children and families throughout LaSalle, Bureau and Putnam counties

The 5th annual Toy Run, founded by Drew Faletti of Spring Valley, was held on Oct. 3 and raised $15,000 for local charities supporting children in Bureau, Putnam and LaSalle counties.

Volunteers from the three-county region get area businesses to be supporters of the event each year. The volunteers help with numerous raffles throughout the year to raise funds for the event. There are a few small fundraisers during late spring and summer. New volunteers are always welcome.

The organization wishes to thank those businesses and people that donated to the cause. The goal has always been to raise funds and receive toys for less fortunate children and people in the three-county area.

This year’s funds are now being dispersed to local charities for the children.
