Community leaders took a turn behind jail bars raising money to buy Brighter Christmas toys Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the corner of 10th Street and Central Avenue.

The jail is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Brighter Christmas. Treasurer Gene Birk said the jail raised $8,700 with another $2,500 in pledges still to come this year.

Donations can still be made online at

People who still need to sign up for Brighter Christmas food and toys can apply through Tracy Interfaith Ministries, 311 W. Grant Line Road, 836-5424. The deadline is Dec. 13.
