PANAMA CITY BEACH - The Bay County Sheriff's Office is collecting new, unwrapped toys and donations for their "Project 25."

Deputies collected toys for needy kids Saturday at the Harley-Davidson of Panama City Beach.

Project 25 has been held by the Sheriff's Office for more than 30 years.

The toys will be donated to children in Bay County during Christmas.

Those who brought a toy are now registered for an in store drawings to win a variety of Harley-Davidson items.

Organizer Becky Johns said, "We don't want any child in Bay County to wake up with nothing. Every toy helps. We could probably give gifts to six or more kids. They will wake up and have something."

They collected about 100 toys during Saturday's event.

Organizers say it's not too late to donate.

Donations to Project 25 of new, unwrapped toys can be made Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Bay County Sheriff's Office.

Monetary donations also accepted.
