Animals on a Toy Run

In addition to the many stuffed animals brought by the hundreds of motorcyclists who participated in the Polk County Toy Run last Saturday, one cyclist brought a live bird (below), although it was not donated as a gift. The annual Toy Run donates toys and raises funds for the needy, which are distributed throughout the county by the Polk County Department of Social Services, Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry and Steps To HOPE. Motorcyclists began in Saluda and rode through Tryon, Landrum and around to Mill Spring and ended up dropping off toys at the Polk County Courthouse. (photos by Leah Justice)
