Bob & Steve stopped by today to tell us all about Toys For Tots. Boxes were set out yesterday all around central Minnesota in an effort to collect toys throughout the holiday season.  The time crunch is on. We have approximately 3 1/2 weeks to get those gifts and cash donations in before they are distributed for the holiday season.

Toys for Tots work closely with Catholic Charities to make sure that families and children in need get something for Christmas. Both men have been around the world, and have seen what going without means; they don't want to see that happen for the people in our community.

Working with Catholic Charities, all of the gifts and cash donations are used for people in this area; so it's a great collaberation that they invite you to be a part of.

They are collecting gives for children from 0 through 16....You can donate a gift of any value, but over $15 is recommended. If you give a cash donation, they are welcome as well. Toys For Tots is limited to buying $30 maximum priced gifts with cash donations, so that they can make sure no one is left behind.
