Applications are being accepted and readers of the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram are once again encouraged to put smiles on childrenÃ¢Â€Â™s faces during the holiday season.
Applications can be made at pressheraldtoyfund.org. Donations can also be made on the website or checks can be made out to the Portland Press Herald Toy Fund and mailed to P.O. Box 7310, Portland, ME 04112.
The Toy Fund used to be known as the Bruce Roberts Toy Fund, a reference to the pen name of the Portland Evening Express editor who started the program in 1949. It continues the original mission as conceived in 1949.
The campaignÃ¢Â€Â™s fundraising goal this year is $300,000.
