The Dalton Police Department thanks everyone who came out and helped out with our second annual Toy Run for Kids! Approximately 50 bikers turned out to make the run, and the event raised more than $400 and many toys for less fortunate kids in Dalton.
The toys will be delivered at a holiday party this winter with kids chosen by the Dalton Public School System.
The Dalton Police Department wants to give special thanks to the Calhoun Police Department Motorcycle Unit,
Mountain Creek Harley Davidson, Mapco for donating free coffee for riders, and Daylight Donuts for donating donuts for the riders.
