Residents will have an opportunity to give to a child in need this Christmas through one of the Toys for Tots stations inside the gates.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys in October, November and December for distribution to less fortunate children in the community over Christmas.
In 2021, Toys for Tots collected and distributed 10,830 toys to over 3,100 needy children in Pickens and Dawson counties.
Collection boxes are inside the Big Canoe Fire Station and the Package Porch. Toys can be collected until Dec. 17 before they are distributed to local children.
All new unwrapped toys are welcome. To donate items such as bicycles or cash, please contact Robert Jaeckel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-778-7678. Online cash donations can also be made to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation website.
