Gerber family contributes to Marines' toy drive

by Jolene Toves

Guam - After learning that the Marine Corps' "Toys for Toys Drive" needed some assistance with their collections.  The Gerber family wasted no time answering the call for help.  They donated over $3,000 worth of toys to the U.S. Marines this afternoon at the Pacific War Museum. 

The museum was built by the late John Gerber, who was a proud lifelong Marine and a champion for the rights of veterans. He passed away in 2010. His sister Janet Calvo said, "I called Mel and I told her, 'Why don't we get some contributions together and fill up John's truck?' because if he knew that his fellow Marines were falling behind in their quest here he would chip in."

Aside from Janet and John Calvo, also contributing to the donation was John Gerber's wife Mela and his brother Martin and his wife Liz.
