State Rep. Jim Arciero’s Sun Santa/Toys for Tots Fundraiser drew more than 400 supporters on Thursday, Dec. 6. The 8th annual event raised more than $20,000 for the Lowell Sun Santa Fund which helps families in need during the holiday season.

“So what the Sun Santa Fund does is work with Community Partners and individual donors who raise money to support a voucher system to pay for toys and food vouchers,” said Sun Santa Fund Coordinator Nancy Roberts. “Our tag line is ‘Share the joy of Christmas’ and so that is our hope and we serve the 23 communities served by the newspaper.”

Toys are also collected during the event for the US Marine Corp Honor Guard Toys for Tots organization.
