Skip Says Goodbye after Nine Years with Toys for Tots


BREWER - There are 19 days to go until jolly St. Nick leaves presents for all those good boys and girls under their respective trees.


For the last nine years now, the big guy had a helper here in Bangor, to make sure every local child wakes up with a gift from their list on Christmas day.


Skip Young has organized the Greater Bangor area Toys for Tots drive for nearly a decade. Starting out collecting toys in his now a vacant Brewer shop next to Hannaford...he's made sure Santa delivered presents to tens of thousands of local children.


But his tireless efforts come at a price. Skip hasn't seen his grandchildren in months. That's why this year, will be his last.
