Pennsylvania State Police Troop B, out of Washington, Fayette, Allegheny and Greene Counties, picked up 300 toys from Ed Higinbotham in Georges Township, Fayette County.

Higinbotham has been making toys since he retired in the early 90s and has given hundreds of toys to “Gifts for Kids of Fayette County” for years.

Gifts For Kids is operated by the PA State Police.

Last year Higinbotham told the Herald Standard in Uniontown, “I love it. I don’t play Santa Claus, but I give the toys to them, and they can distribute them.’’
