Just Days Left in Toys for Tots Campaign
There are less than two weeks until Toys for Tots wraps up its holiday donation drive in hopes of giving every child in our area a merry Christmas.
So far, you have helped collect 18,000 treasures. On top of that, more than $25,000 has been raised for the cause. But organizers say they're still 5,000 toys short of their goal, and there are particular age groups they need help with.
"Pretty much the age groups we're looking for that we have the most trouble is 10 to 14, boys and girls," Thomas Altevogt of Toys for Tots said. "And the little ones. The babies."
Students from Rochester high school and junior high are getting in on the action too. Students decided to have a competition to see which school can collect more toys.
The final collection date is December 16.
