Toys for Tots barrels collected throughout La Crosse area

Toys will be distributed December 12th

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The Toys for Tots donation drive is nearing the finish line this year.

Volunteers collected 90 local, donation barrels.

Your gifts will be passed on to families in need.

Organizers say every donation is an important one.

“We did have a couple that were a little light, which we expected. With the pandemic this year, we’re not upset about that. People can only do what they can do. But a lot of them were overflowing, which was great to see,” said La Crosse Toys for Tots media assistant director Jason Jones.

Donated toys will be distributed on December 12th to families that have completed registration.

Donations to support Toys for Tots will be accepted during the Joy of Sharing event on Friday.

The drive is at the Festival Foods in Onalaska.
