Can you believe how quickly this year is flying by? The holiday season is rapidly approaching. This is a special time for many to spend time with loved ones and to give gifts, especially to the children in our families. Unfortunately, not all kids will receive a present this year, and we want to help change that. Some of you may be aware we began collecting toys on behalf of Toys For Tots for the first time last year. We are so glad for the opportunity to do the same again this year and hope to exceed last year’s donations!
Toys For Tots is a fantastic charity started by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, which collects new and unwrapped toys for children right here in the Tampa Bay Area who may not receive a gift this holiday season.
Please consider the following:
- Toys must be new and unwrapped
- No toy guns or weapons are accepted
- No food items will be distributed
- Toys must be received by December 15, 2017
- Board games
- Arts and craft supplies
- Handheld games and small electronics
- Activity and coloring books
- Dolls and action figures
