Collin County Toys for Tots
Collection November 3-December 15
Sorting December 14-17
Distribution December 18
This year FUMC Allen is working with Collin County Toys for Tots to bring the joy of a new toy on Christmas to children in our community. Last year, Toys for Tots distributed 35,649 toys to 16,846 children in Collin County alone.
What kind of toy would be welcome? Just think about children you’ve known and buy what would be appropriate.
Keep in mind that Toys for Tots also serves preteens and teens, so items for this age group could include the following:
- Sports equipment
- Sports bags
- Sports balls
- Bath gift sets
- Board games
Toys for Tots does not accept realistic looking weapons or gifts with food.
Allen Community Outreach is partnering with Toys for Tots to sort and distribute the donations, and FUMC Allen will serve as the sorting and distribution site. Volunteers will be sorting items from Saturday, December 14, through Tuesday, December 17, with distribution on Wednesday, December 18.
If you would like to help with ACO’s collection and sorting days, sign up online at www.acocares.org or contact ACO volunteer director Janis Christie. Background checks and volunteer registration is required.
