( – Residents in the Metro East are showing their appreciation for local veterans and helping children at the same time.

On Sunday morning, residents attended a veteran’s breakfast at the VFW in Caseyville.

The event also doubles as a fundraiser for Toys For Tots.

Organizers say money raised from the breakfast will go toward buying toys for older kids in the community.

“Most people don’t realize that we gift from 6-months-old to 12-years-old and when they go out to buy, they always buy for the smaller kids,” said Ray Adams, Co-coordinator for Toys For Tots.
