6th Annual Grinch Toy Run To Help Needy Children This Christmas

The 6th annual Grinch Run held last Saturday in Smithfield was a huge success.

Toys were collected from the participants instead of a registration fee. All the toys donated will be used to provide Christmas presents for the children in Johnston County through Harbor and the Johnston County Department of Social Services.

Sponsors of the Grinch Run this year were the Kiwanis Club of Smithfield, WTSB 1090 AM Radio, WMPM 1270 AM Radio, W. Landis Bullock Industrial & Contractor Supply, Smithfield Recreation and Aquatic Center, Smithfield Parks and Recreation, Smithfield Police Department, Sheetz, and the Junior Women’s league.

A total of 135 runners and 50 Jingle Bell Joggers participated.
