GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - WITN will be an official drop-off location for Toys for Tots now through December 5th.
The Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation helps provide gifts to families who might not be able to afford them otherwise. In 2017, Toys for Tots provided presents for more than 22,000 children in Pitt County alone.
Most of the Christmas gifts go to children under the age of 14.
You can drop off a new, unwrapped toy at WITN's Greenville studio at 275 E. Arlington Blvd. Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
We'll be collecting gifts until December 5th, when Toys for Tots volunteers will pick them all up for distribution.
Please note, toy weapons and food items are not accepted.
