Toys For Tots Drive A Huge Success

We would like to thank all the groups and individuals who stopped by the WITN studio in Greenville as well as our Washington bureau to drop off donations during our 2013 Toys for Tots drive. Each donation was a part of making this drive a huge success!

Thanks to your big hearts and generosity, many less fortunate boys and girls in Eastern Carolina will be smiling on Christmas morning.

We would also like to thank PODS for donating a container to help us store all the toys during our drive. Even with the POD, we still had a studio overflowing with giant stuffed animals, bikes, instruments, games, dolls and more!

Our studio is now empty, and the toys are being sorted, bagged, and dispersed for those that requested them.


WITN is proud to once again be a major collection site for the Toys for Tots Foundation. Brighten the life of a child this Christmas morning by donating a new, unwrapped toy during our 2013 toy drive!

WITN will accept donations for the 2013 Toys for Tots drive between Monday, November 25th and Tuesday, December 17th.

This year's drive is sponsored by Ashley Furniture Home Store, Jersey Mike's Subs and Robinson Law Firm.

Toys for Tots is a campaign run strictly through the US Marine Corps Reserve and the Toys for Tots Foundation. Each year, the US Marine Corps teams up with various businesses and organizations to provide toy drop-off locations for those wishing to make a donation. The Marine Corps Reserve, Marine Corps League and civilian volunteers collect all toy donations and distribute them to needy families in the area.
