This year’s Toys for Tots Toy drive is underway with several locations, including all three Paris Fire Departments, to drop off unopened and unwrapped toys. This year’s deadline to drop off toys is Dec. 3.
Paris Harley-Davidson will host its annual toy drive on Dec. 3 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., featuring everything from a Christmas sweater contest to free pictures with Santa.
“The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community. 97% of monetary donations are used to buy toys and only 3% goes to pay for administrative bills. 100% of all the toys donated are given to our needy children.”
Boxes to donate for the Toys for Tots campaign have sprouted up in businesses in and around the community.
