Holland Celebrates the Season with Community Service All Year

These first responders will distribute the gifts to those in their local communities to help build stronger bonds between first responders and the communities they serve.

The toy drive was spearheaded by Holland 2-million-miler, Roy Gillespie, and retired Holland professional driver Mike Koeller (a Minister at the Leap of Faith Church in Maryland Heights). Though the distribution event took a full two days, the duo actually started working on this drive last December!
