Donation barrels collected for Toys for Tots drive in La Crosse

Thousands of toys will soon be in the hands of kids in need in our area.

Volunteers from the La Crosse Jaycees went around town collecting donation barrels throughout our community Friday.

A Toys for Tots co-chair said our community has done even more this year.

“We have picked up so many toys, the community has been so generous this year. The places we have picked up from have, I feel like, picked up each year also,” said Amanda Olbrys, Toys for Tots Co-Chair.

Toys will be distributed to families next Saturday.

Volunteers are still needed to help with the distribution effort.

More information about helping the La Crosse Jaycees is available on the La Crosse Jaycees website,
