Toys for Tots registration underway

PITT COUNTY, NC (WITN) - It’s never too early to plan for our Toys for Tots drive!

Some locations across eastern Carolina have already started accepting applications, others will soon. Deadlines vary from location to location, so those who their children to participate ned to fill out an application at their designated Toys for Tots campaign agency; do not fill out an application online, you have to do it in person.

You can find your local Toys for Tots agency at www.toysfortots.org and then click on the “find your local campaign” tab.

Pastor Rodney Coles, a local Toys for Tots coordinator reminds those who plan to donate to remember all ages.

Toys for Tots collects new and unwrapped toys for ages 0-12 and Coles says be sure not to forget the older children when purchasing toys. He says many kids ages 9 and above use cell phones or iPad and they would like items that can accompany technology and other more “teenaged –like” interests.

WITN will hold our Toys for Tots drive here at our Greenville studio on Arlington Blvd. starting Wednesday, November 13 through Thursday, December 5th.

Pick up for all Toys for Tots drives will be on Friday, December 6. Pastor Coles asks for any other business or church based Toys for Tots drive be brought to the WITN studio by December 5th.

Last year our WITN Toys for Tots drive helped more than 28,000 children receive gifts for Christmas.
