Sandboxes for kids

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- How do you make kids smile?  The Waterloo Jaycees found that a sandbox will do.

"A lot of time we can't even get the sand in the box before the kids are ready to go," said Jaycee Board Member Stephen Upchurch.

The Waterloo Jaycees delivered boxes and sand Saturday for the 45th annual sandbox drive.

The profit made goes toward the Jaycees youth events through out the year.  The most famous of these being the "gift of giving", an annual mass Christmas shopping event for kids in the area.

The Waterloo Jaycees are a non-profit group that focuses on community and leadership.

From this drive, the group expects to raise about $600.
