Toys For Tots Drop Off With 59 News

Violeta Podrumedic and Kevin Powell help the Marines collect toys for Toys For Tots

What can a $15 new, unwrapped toy mean to a less fortunate child?

Toys for Tots drives are well underway including last Friday when Marines collected donations outside our WTHI-TV studio.

Like every year, the toys most needed this holiday season are those for older kids.

In times of economic uncertainty, parents take care of what's most important first - a place to live, food, and warmth. In 2016, Toys for Tots spent an additional $10 million to bridge the gap between donations and demand.

"Oklahomans know AAA for emergency roadside rescues, insurance and travel services", says Leslie Gamble, manager of Public and Government Affairs, "but we are also concerned about those in need throughout our communities". Sannes said the collected toys are being stored in a warehouse off US 301 and will be sorted and distributed out before Christmas.

The Mike's Carwash in Evansville raised more than $1,700 for the local Toys for Tots campaign.

In addition to their special room rate, the WCG Hotel portfolio will offer guests numerous ways to support Toys for Tots. In my case, there were between two and three of us, and we devoted somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 hours a week from Thanksgiving to Christmas to trying our best to make under privileged kids' Christmases just a little bit better.
