Collecting Toys

Nester Realty in Columbia is serving as a toy drop off for Toys for Tots. They started as a drop off point last year and it worked out well, with around $1,000 worth of toys dropped off there for the kids. This year, the drive goes until Dec. 13. Toys can be dropped off at the office, located at 219 S. Main Street in Columbia, Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Managing Broker Don Schaefer is also happy to pick up any toys in the Red Bud area if needed. Please call 618-978-7231 to make arrangements for a pick up or to arrange an after hours drop off. Pictured at the kick off for their toy drive are the Nester Realty agents: Kelly Kern, Claire Leopold, Don Schaefer, Lori Prior and Carole Hummel.
