Gi­anna Granato, 6, and her broth­er Steven Granato, 7, of Bustleton, star­ted rais­ing money for Toys for Tots by mak­ing rub­ber-band brace­lets and key chains. They began in Oc­to­ber this past year, and were selling in loc­al malls and street stands by Novem­ber. Every time they raised a suf­fi­cient amount of money, they bought toys for kids and con­tac­ted a loc­al char­ity that could use them. Their par­ents have al­ways en­cour­aged them to help their com­munity with some sort of pro­ject. Since the brace­lets and key chains have been such a suc­cess for them, they would like to keep selling past the hol­i­days and con­tin­ue donat­ing the money to char­it­ies.
