Toys for Tots drive underway

22News Toys for Tots toy collection starts it's final week Toys for Tots accepting money, new toys for St. Lawrence County kids
Lucia Summers | 07 December, 2017, 16:47

Monetary donations can be by check (made out to: Marine Toys for Tots Foundation) or in cash.

Toys for Tots is regarded as the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's premier community action program, with a misson to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year and distribute those toys to less fortunate children in the community where the campaign is conducted.

The goal for this Holiday season is to help around 2,000 children and teenagers receive gifts this Christmas, and according to Davies donations are right on track to reaching its goal.

Since older kids' needs often are overlooked, please consider donating for those ages 12 to 18.

Volunteers then hand out the toys to families in need.

Jeffrey Tambor May Not Quit 'Transparent' After All
In a statement to Deadline , Tambor citied a "politicized atmosphere" as the reason for his autonomous departure. Transparent follows several members of the Pfefferman family as they all deal with their own unique struggles.

As this year's official Toys for Tots drop off location, Papa Murphy's stores across Utah - as well as in Rock Springs, Evanston, and Elko - are giving back to those who donate as well.

Last year, our KIRO 7 Toy Drive, which benefits Toys for Tots, brought in some 40,000 toys and more than $5,000.

Despite there not being a Toys for Tots program in Midland, other charities within the city have stepped forward.

The school will have an all day Toys for Tots collection day on Friday.

"What I hope it does is let those individuals know there's someone out there that's still making sure that they feel loved and appreciated", Renaud said.
