Tuesday, December 18, 2012 - 1:20pm

Jammin Jimmy Olson and The Breeze 95.3/102.3 are proud to announce another successful Toys for Tots drive for 2012!

On Monday, at 9 a.m., JJO counted 147 donated bikes-- 45 more than his goal -- and has another $2,000 worth coming from Tyler-based John Soules Food.

A new record of 7,056.5 pounds of toys were taken in over an 8 day period in which JJO lived in a box at the Broadway Square Mall in Tyler.

Jimmy didn't’t leave his pod until listeners stopped by the Broadway Square Mall to drop off toys for a boy or a girl to donate to the Marine’s Toys for Tots Drive. Last year he raised over 5,802 pounds of toys. This year Cherokee and Anderson Counties, were added to the drive.

Please join JJO and the Marines as they distribute the toys collected to families in need Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at 10 a.m. at The Old Texas Guard Armory on Commerce St., just inside the Loop. For more information contact Larry Atkins at 903-894-6764.
