The Toys for Tots organization will accept toy or cash donations through the Lamar area until Monday, December 11th.  After that, the toys will be categorized and prepared for sacking on Saturday, December 16th prior to the delivery date of December 24th.

Volunteers are still being sought to help in the workshop Monday through Thursday from 6pm to 9pm at the Car Palace on North Main Street in Lamar. Volunteer drivers to distribute the toys are needed the morning of the 24th.  Toys are sorted according to gender and age and used toys are cleaned and put in working order.  The gifts should not be wrapped.  Cash is always accepted and donations can be delivered to 1208 South 5th Street in Lamar in care of Darlene Lopez or at Paul’s Body Shop at 7345 Highway 50.
