Nelson boy celebrates toy haul

Jeremiah Richichi's toy drive for needy children was a success.

Nelson youngster Jeremiah Richichi would like to thank the community for their generosity after launching a successful toy drive for local children in need.

“Jeremiah proudly delivered five huge garbage bags of toys to be distributed to many families in need this Christmas. When asked by one of the volunteers why he did this his answer was simple: ‘ I just wanted to help other kids’,” his proud mother, Rebecca Richichi, told the Star.

“A huge thank you to all of the people of Nelson who donated to his toy drive, who gave kind encouraging words, and who showed their support. As you can see the donations piled higher than Jeremiah himself.”
