(MENA) The Polk County Toys For Tots campaign that helps numerous children in the area, is in need of your help.
Last year, with the closure of Toys R Us nationwide and with the reduction of approximately $3000 in donation items from The National Foundation, it has severely hampered the local organization in putting smiles on children’s faces this holiday season.
The Marine Corps League Detachment in Polk County is asking that local businesses or individuals assist them in tackling this unfortunate situation in making sure that children in our area have toys needed to keep those smiles shining brightly.
Approximately 551 children in Polk County received 2,364 toys, stocking stuffers and books. That amounts to $43.42 per child in gifts. Overall, $23,927.59 was garnered in monetary donations toward last year’s campaign.
