MOSES LAKE — It’s a simple thing, really, helping a child on Christmas.

That’s what the Big Bend Community College Veterans Resource Office wanted to this weekend by giving away toys to veterans’ families.

“We just wanted to give back to our veterans and our families in the community,” said Jim Leland, BBCC’s veterans resource officer.

Across some tables in the Moses Lake Eagles Club, Leland helped organize and sort stacks of brand new, donated toys, everything from toy cars to Play-Doh to puzzles and games. The stuff you’d need to help make someone’s holiday just a little bit brighter.

“We had a nice turnout at the opening,” Leland said on Saturday afternoon as he took a break from organizing toys. “Now we have vets trickling in.”
