North Shore Holiday Toy Drive expected to collect thousands of toys for North
Shore Children in need.

Once again, North Shore 104.9 and State Senator Bruce Tarr will hit the road collecting
toys for children on the North Shore and broadcasting live all day. This year’s
Holiday Toy Drive will take place on Thursday, December 10th from 6:30am to 6:00pm
from eight locations on the North Shore. The live broadcast will feature local
entertainment, school choirs and bands, great food, interviews with local officials
and even Santa Claus will be on the road helping the cause. Eastern Insurance
and Safety Insurance have partnered with North Shore 104.9 to present the 14th
annual North Shore Holiday Toy Drive broadcast. North Shore 104.9 is proud to
announce that Eastern Insurance will be presenting a cash donation at each broadcast
location to go to the charity of choice.

“This year’s Toy Drive
is another great opportunity for the North Shore’s holiday spirit and generosity
to shine as we all come together to bring happiness to children at a time when
every child deserves to know that we care about them,” Tarr said. This toy
drive will be his 14th since being elected into the Senate in 1994.

North Shore Toy Drive has been such a big part of our community for a long time
and we look forward to the event all year,” stated Todd Tanger, President
of North Shore 104.9FM. Tanger added, “This is a tradition that brings joy
to so many people in our area over the holiday season, and we are proud to be
a part of it. There are many charities in need this holiday season but what makes
our Annual North Shore Holiday Toy Drive unique and exciting is that all of the
toys raised during this event go directly to children right here on the North
