Toy Drive Held in Memory of Delhi Man

A toy drive is being held this Christmas in memory of a Delhi man who lost his life earlier this year.

Alex Salow helped collect and deliver toys for sick children at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital last year. And his mom, Sherri, says they’re continuing this new tradition in his honor this year.

If you would like to help by donating toys, there are several drop-off locations in Delaware County. You can bring the toys to Arctic Fusion or Isadorabella’s Boutique in Manchester. The Delhi Fire Station will also open their doors as a drop-off spot on Friday night from 6 to 9 or Saturday from 9 to 1.

Salow says they’d like to have the toys collected by this Saturday. They plan to deliver the toys to the kids at the Stead Family Children’s Hospital on the Friday before Christmas.
