A Putnam County woman is being praised by Sheriff Robert Langley for helping out with the “Toys For Tots” collection drive. 90-year old Marie Brady has been a resident of Tilly Foster, Southeast, for her entire life and donates her time and money to helping children. Each year Marie goes around town and, through word of mouth, gets many people to donate toys for the program. She purchases many toys herself and this year, with the items she bought and those donated by others, she collected over 200 toys and 21 bicycles. Brady was helped this year by close friend Wendy Koehler and Sheriff’s Cadet Vincent Ricci. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department picked up the toys at her residence and dropped them off at the local drop off site.
