The business collected hundreds of toys from local residents for the Toys For Tots program operated through PICCA.

CIRCLEVILLE – Employees of TransCounty Title Agency in Circleville recently celebrated a successful “Christmas In July” event, collecting hundreds of toys for the local Toys For Tots program.

While the business annually hosts a toy drive during the holiday season, they decided this year to get a jump-start on the effort to provide Christmas toys for less fortunate children in Pickaway County, according to Rob Febes of the Circleville office.

Febes said donations poured in to the West Main Street office during the month, and donors were entered in a drawing for a $25 gift card from a local business of their choice. The gift card winner this year was Karen Zimmerman, he said.

Febes said the company was on board with the idea from the start, and the community response was tremendous.

He said the business will host its traditional toy drive again near Christmas time, and they will definitely host another “Christmas In July” next summer.
