The Wiregrass Marine Corps League Detachment 752 is collecting new, unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots program to distribute as Christmas gifts to children who may not have the opportunity of receiving gifts. The primary goal is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to these children and to motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.
Toys for Tots registration for Wiregrass families needing assistance has ended and many area families struggling to make ends meet have signed up. If you would like to make a donation for this year’s Toys for Tots program or would like to drop off toys, dial 2-1-1 (toll free) on your phone or 1-888-421-1266 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. only, Monday through Friday. A Wiregrass United Way 2-1-1 Call Specialist will be able to assist you.
