The Newcastle community is invited to help make the holidays a little brighter for children in need by contributing a gift at a Dec. 14 Toys for Toys event.

Newcastle Fruit and Produce and Newcastle Heated Storage have teamed up to host the daylong event, while the Newcastle Starbucks will provide coffee and pastries.

Attendees can drop off new, unwrapped toys at the Newcastle Fruit and Produce stand from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 14.

The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
