Mitch Ryan, the local Edward Jones financial adviser, is supporting the Toys for Tots program by using his office as a drop-off location for this year's toy drive.

Local residents may help needy children in the area by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy to the office, 808 16th Avenue, East Moline, during regular business hours beginning today through November 30th.

"With the holiday season around the corner, we are all getting ready for the festivities," Mr Ryan said. "And as this is the season of giving, now is a great time to remember the less fortunate in our community."
