13abc, the Salvation Army and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves (Toys for Tots) are teaming up for another year to support families in our community this holiday season.
This year's annual Hope for the Holiday toy drive kicks off on Nov. 15 and runs through Dec. 13. All collected toys will be given to local families through the Salvation Army and U.S. Marine Corps Reserves (Toys for Tots) programs. Families are selected via an application process, which has wrapped up for the 2019 holiday season.
The joint effort started in 2011, bringing in more than 113,000 toys since its beginning that have been distributed locally.
13abc partners include Arnold's Home Improvement, Dave White Chevrolet and Acura and Jim White Toyota, Key Bank and Gallon, Takacs & Boissoneault to present Hope for the Holidays.
