The Rotary Club of Shepherdstown has donated $1,220 to this year's "Candy Cane Express" Christmas toy drive for needy children attending T.A. Lowery Elementary School in Shenandoah Junction. The toy drive is intended to assist T.A. Lowery-student families who have been identified as lacking sufficient means to provide their children with toys. It begins on November 1 and lasts through the first week of December. The school provides detailed guidance on the kinds of toys needed, and all the toys collected must be new and unopened. When the drive is over, families come to the school to select their children's toys before the school begins its Christmas break, The Rotary Club presented its check on November 29 at the school. All the funds for it were raised through individual contributions from Club members.
