Jul 08, 2016 02:00AM
The Christmas giving season for Nassau County Toys for Tots will kick off with a Christmas in July fundraiser on Saturday, July 16 from 8 a.m. To 2 p.m. At The Beach Diner, 2006 South 8th Street. Sponsored by the Marine Corps League, Everett P. Pope Det. 1017, the Nassau County Toys for Tots is part of an annual event of the National Marine Corps Reserve, started in 1947.

Christmas in July will feature food, fun contests, balloons, and giveaways for the kids. Participants are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for a girl or boy between the ages of infancy to 14 years, and a portion of your food check will be donated to Nassau County Toys for Tots. All proceeds and toys go directly to Nassau County children.

Since Amelia Island is Santa Claus’ summer home, he will be in his beach attire and available for photos. To volunteer, donate, or for more information call (904) 430-7318.
