Moody-Daniel Funeral Home Assisting with Operation Toy Soldier

ZEBULON - Moody-Daniel Funeral Home in Zebulon will be celebrating their third year assisting with “Operation Toy Soldier,” a holiday toy drive that gives back to the local community’s service men and women and their families. As a partner of Veterans' Funeral Care, Moody-Daniel Funeral Home supports Veterans and their families in any way possible to thank them for their service.

Christmas time is all about giving and all about the smiles on children’s faces. What better way to serve our Veterans than by ensuring their children have gifts for Christmas! The toys collected in this toy drive will be given exclusively to the families of soldiers from the 48th Brigade who are located out of the Georgia National Guard Armory in Griffin. These soldiers are are shipping out to Afghanistan after Christmas.

Terrell Moody, Funeral Director of Moody-Daniel Funeral Home, whose father served in Europe in WWII, states “What makes this toy drive different is that this is program for local enlisted service men and women. All of the toys are for families in our community.”

The drive will run through December 12. Boxes printed with toy soldiers and camouflage have been placed at Chick-fil-A in Griffin, Griffin Waypoint Veteran’s Center, Pike County American Legion Post 197 in Zebulon, and Moody-Daniel Funeral Home in Zebulon.

Footballs and soccer balls are a big hit. Barbie Dolls and coloring books are huge. If your child would like it, other children will love it too.

Moody-Daniel Funeral Home appreciates all support and donations to this campaign. The history of “Operation Toy Soldier” can be found at operationtoysoldier.com.
