Toys for Tots Underway for 2022

 

A huge shout out to our community for once again pulling together in a time of need and making sure each child will receive gifts on such a special holiday. We couldn’t do it without the help of each and every one of you and especially to our volunteers that spend countless hours behind the scenes at the workshop.

We have many citizens, groups, employers, that have helped continuously throughout the years and it doesn’t go unnoticed. You all are a huge part of why Toys for Tots is still going and will continue to each year.

Darlene and Santa

As most of you have heard, we will be doing this year totally different than previous. Starting Friday, December 2nd, we are bringing children in to do their own shopping. We have made calls to each family who have signed up to set a time and let them know what is needed to get their gifts.

Close to 80 children visited our headquarters on West Beech Street this past Friday and close to $1,200 was raised by the Colorado State Patrol and Ports of Entry officers the Friday following Thanksgiving at the Tri-County Ford parking lot adjacent to Walmart on East Olive Street.

The second date available for pick up will be Saturday, December 10th, so please keep in mind we will be accepting donations all year round but would love to see some come in between those dates to ensure we will be able to cover each kid in need. We are excited to announce Santa will be on site also!

Please keep in mind that we are doing this to hopefully make each kids Christmas brighter by getting able to pick out something they will enjoy and not set aside. Without the support of a caring community like ours, we wouldn’t be able to continue to Toys for Tots so again, thank you all!
