CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – There’s less than a week left of our Toys for Tots campaign and we still need your help filling our lobby with toys for area children in need.

Wednesday morning, the Operating Engineers Local 98 dropped off truckloads of toys and bikes.

Phil Chaffee told 22News, that they hold a clam bake fundraiser every year, to raise money so they can buy these donations for Toys for Tots.

This year, they raised over $3,000 and bought everything from bikes and helmets to sports equipment.
