Toys for Tots taking donations
The U.S. Marine Corp. Pennington County Toys for Tots is taking donations. The Distribution Day is Dec. 8th at the Central States Fairgrounds from 8 am until 5 pm.
Volunteers are busy counting and sorting toys for the annual toy giveaway this week.
Recipients may register online or show up the day of distribution with proof of child and proof of residency in Pennington County.
New, unwrapped toys can be put in donation bins at area businesses, like BAM or HomeSlice Media or by contacting Black Hills Toys for Tots.
Parents can ‘shop’ for gifts for their child. Each child receives a stocking stuffer, a book, a toy and a stuffed animal.
You can also give a monetary donation to help make the holidays special for families in need. Donations are taken all year round.
Krissy Davies, Toys for Tots Co-Coordinator, says, “You know we want to make sure all the families out there help get their kids toys for Christmas and that Santa does show up at their house for Christmas.”
If a family can’t make it to the Distribution Day, they can contact Krissy to receive toys.
Last year the organization gave toys to over 3,000 children in the area.
