Decatur - Vinnie's Barbee-Q toy drive was a big success.
Toys were collected outside of Olive Garden from 8 p.m. Thursday to 8 a.m. today. The toys will be donated to area families who cannot afford gifts. More than forty toys were dropped off, an increase from last year.
Vinnie says he wants more toys to give! Just drop off new toys at the Woodford Mini Warehouses, located on North Woodford Street. If you drop them off Barbee will pick them up, just give him a call at 429-6147.
