Marines Sponsor Toys for Tots

Marine Corps veteran Joe LoParo (right) stands with Navy and Pearl Harbor veteran Mikki Ganitch, who was two weeks shy of 101 in this recent photograph. Ganitch was serving aboard the USS Pennsylvania on Dec. 7, 1941, when the ship was docked in Pearl Harbor. A decorated 22-year veteran, Ganitch urges everyone to make a special effort to donate to the Toys for Tots program this year. The program has twice as much need and a noted decline in sponsorships this year. Leave donations at LoParo’s office, Keller Williams office, 2437 Santa Clara Ave or call (510) 813-5273 and LaPoro will arrange for a pick up your donation.
