There are two families in our neighborhood. Both took part in this program. One has a dad and husband who is a well paid truck driver. The mom lied about her application and got several bags full of nice new toys and a bike.<p>
The other family, a single mom with three kids and currently no income at all, got nothing but a couple of used things. Not sure how that was allowed, but when she got there, someone else was accidentally given the toys for her children. The workers told her that they would throw something together. They did. It was used stuff including a couple of beat up old teddy bears.<p>
How do they screen the applicants for toys for tots. And I am not sure it was this exact one, but it WAS in Leesburg.
