HUSTONVILLE - Toys for Tots fundraising is getting a jump start this weekend in Hustonville.
Hustonville Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary are hosting a kickoff event for the Toys for Tots season with Autumn Fest from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
The city holds its own festival each summer, but Kim Simpson with Ladies Auxiliary, said this festival is separate from the city's, and is the first fall festival held by the fire department.
"It was just an idea where everybody can have fun," Simpson said. " a great idea for the whole community."
Gene Crowe, fire chief, said the fire department has held bake sales, car washes and asked for donations in the past for the charity. He said members of the fire department are excited about holding a new Toys for Tots fundraiser.
