2018 Toys For Tots Campaign Is Underway
Run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots is a program which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.
It is time once again for the Toys for Tots campaign. Toys will be collected at dozens of businesses across Kewaunee County. Consider dropping off new, unwrapped toys to help brighten the holidays for local families in need.
Drop-off boxes are scheduled to be at all locations by the middle of November 2018.
