SOS from Toys for Tots - donations needed for kids | Community Spirit
Larry Atkins with East Texas' Toys for Tots program said the organization is in need of two things: donations for children, and families who would like to be on the receiving end of the group's holiday giving.
First, families who would like to be on the list to receive Christmas gifts for their children must sign up by November 10. Sign up is held at the State Guard Armory, which is located just insed East Loop 323 at 2520 E. Commerce Street, Tyler. The number there is (903)593-5071.
Next, to make a donation to Toys for Tots, please place a new, unwrapped toy in any drop-off box. The boxes are labeled Toys for Tots and are located all around the community, in places such as Walmart, Walgreens, Chick-fil-A and Big Lots. The boxes will be in place until December 20.
Another helpful way to donate is to mail a check made out to Toys for Tots to:
Toys for Tots
19240 Honeysuckle Drive
Flint, Texas 75762
The organization will take your donation and buy toys to distribute. Toys bought by the organization itself are bought at a discount, so your financial donation will buy even more toys than you could purchase yourself!
Either way, Toys For Tots will be grateful for any help you may be able to give, large or small, and hope that you will encourage a family in need to sign up to receive gifts for their children.
