Toy Drive under way in Toledo

The Toledo Food Bank is asking area residents to help support their annual Christmas Toy Drive to help brighten up the holidays for local families in need.

Toys and other gift items are needed for children between infancy and their teens and can be dropped off, unwrapped, at donation boxes at Toledo Market Fresh, the Toledo Community Library and Timberland Bank. Also needed are socks, pajamas, gloves, basic cosmetics and sports-related toys. Monetary donations may also be made to Timberland Bank into an account set up for the toy drive.

Donations will be distributed on Dec. 12 and 17 in conjunction with the food bank. Organizers would like to thank community members for counting to support this important fundraiser. The Toledo food bank is open regularly the second and fourth Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. behind City Hall (130 N 2nd St., in Toledo).
