Toys for Tots in Jackson and George County event will be drive-thru this year

Toys for Toys in Jackson and George County will be operating a little different this year due to COVID.

The Jackson and George branch started collecting toys and donations on October 1st and will continue to accept donations until the day of their big toy giveaway which will be December 5th.

This year, the toy drive will be a drive-thru event where masks and gloves will be worn by all volunteers.

Toy donations must be new and individually wrapped, but monetary donations are also being accepted at this time. Lead Coordinator Tracey Powell said, “It’s important because there are a lot of parents that are unemployed, there are a lot of businesses that their employees are not working, and also what’s most important is that the kids receive toys at Christmas. That’s the most important part.”

If you would like to volunteer, make a donation, or sign your child up to be a tot visit toysfortots.org.
