It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Fairfield police officer Joseph Holecek’s office at Rodriguez High School.
It was also rather festive behind receptionist Ginger Lubbers’ desk – with more donated toys waiting to head to Holecek’s office.
The high school’s annual holiday drive is in full swing with aims of beating last year’s toy count of 519. The recent count was at 200, which doubled in just a week.
Freshman Natalie Linan, 15, dropped the first toy in the box this year – a Disney Cars/Planes character project kit. She dropped off the gift the day after she heard the announcement over the school’s loudspeaker.
