Two weeks ago, Ann “Snookie” Morrison was convinced that Grinch forces were at work to keep the annual Santa Bus run from occurring.
Morrison and her volunteers, the Santa’s Helpers, noticed toy donations were down, yet the community need was great. On top of that, the bus itself developed engine problems.
“I was getting ready to throw my hands up,” she said. “I was really worried about it and afraid we would have to ration.”
But, as always seems to happen, the 43rd run came together at the last minute, Morrison said.
